OVER 50 YEARS

Reno Air Racing Association

Over 50 years ago, the first plane went up in the Nevada desert to kick off what would become the STIHL National Championship Air Races and a legacy was born. A legacy of history, heritage and preservation. Of daring, imagination and wonder. Of memories made, traditions formed and legends created one amazing race at a time. Engines roaring. Crowds cheering. Hearts pounding. This is the fastest motorsport on Earth – a one-of-a-kind thrill you have to see, hear and feel to believe. This is classic, cool and contemporary all rolled into one. This is life at 500 miles per hour. This is the National Championship Air Races. The 2020 National Championship Air Races will be held September 16-20 and will go on sale in Spring of 2020. You can place general admission ticket orders online through our website through Race Week or you can purchase your National Championship Air Races ticket in-person, at the entry gate.
