We have attended the National Championship Air Races for many years. Each year the organization, displays and atmosphere improves. Baring occasional tragic events, the Event is a spectacle for all air enthusiasts. Going on Friday gets you the full experience without the crowds.

I was able to visit my first air race in Reno this year. My husband and I loved it. We were able to enjoy the vendors with goods & food. We were also able to see the planes up close. It was a fantastic experience.
