This painting is one of three Steve Cox air racer works featured in the January 2021, issue of Air Classics magazine accompanying Tim Weinschenker's story: Cleveland’s Forgotten1947 Air Racers.
During the first ever all Mustang "Kendall" trophy race at the 1947 Cleveland air races, Woody Edmundson took an early lead in his A-36 Apache (still considered part of the North American Aviation's P-51 Mustang family) #15 "City of Lynchburg, VA II" Woody held the lead until lap four, when race #77 the "Galloping Ghost" flown by Steve Beville took the lead and won the race at a new record closed course speed of 384.6 mph. After his engine failed , Woody was forced to belly land his plane and was seriously injured after striking a tree and demolishing the racer but would go on to recover from the crash.
