    The first Woman's Air Derby (later coined the “Power Puff Derby” by Will Rogers) was held on Aug 18, 1929; it was closely associated with the 99's whose first president was Amelia Earhart. Following various race activities with women contestants through the 1930s, the Powder Puff Derby was revived after WWII in 1947. That year there were only two contestants. The race was re-named the All-Woman Transcontinental Air Race (AWTAR) which continued for 30 years. The race was discontinued after 1977 due to rising costs, decreased sponsorship and air traffic concerns. Subsequent races were named “Air Race Classics” and today the 99s sponsor a smaller race over a 4-day period which concentrates on efficient cross-country flying.
