Mount Olive native Stephanie Kornegay, shown here, and her teammate Cherileigh Dawson of Daytona Beach, Florida, competed against 49 teams in the Air Race Classic. They flew a 2,548-mile route from central Florida to Terre Haute, Indiana, June 21 through June 24. Kornegay is a partner in The Kornegay Company LLC. She develops and operates hotels, apartments and commercial real estate. ‘This is a true “bucket list” experience,’ Kornegay said. ‘I would love to best Amelia Earhart’s highest finish one day.’ Teams in the competition raced against their own time, not against one another.
