During the 200 mile race, the aircraft suffered oil leaks, which covered the windshield, causing the craft to finish 2nd.
The next year, in the Greve trophy race at Cleveland, the Chester Goon was the winner with an average speed of 263.39 mph in an abbreviated field. War put an end to air racing and the plane was never raced again. The Crawford Museum in Cleveland acquired the aircraft in 1991 but as of 2016 was not yet on display.
