2021 STOL Drag World Championship: Winner Bronze Class

Jon Hakala won the Bronze class in the STOL Drag 2021 World Championship at the High Sierra Fly-In this past Saturday, October 16, 2021, flying his Rotax-powered Zenith STOL CH 701 (with heavier Alaskan Bushwheel tires).
25-year-old Jon Hakala is a relatively new pilot with about 100 hours experience flying his Zenith "Sky Jeep." He modestly explained how this was his first competitive event and that he hardly expected to qualify for the event with his stock STOL CH 701.
He made the 5.5 hour trip to the Dead Cow dry lake bed (north of Reno in the high desert) in his Zenith from his home in northwest Oregon.
