55th Annual National Championship Air Races


Every September, thousands of aviation enthusiasts gather at Reno-Stead Airport to watch the best pilots from around the globe compete in the world’s fastest motorsport. Six classes of aircraft compete on a closed-pylon course with speeds that reach over 400mph!
