The world’s fastest motorsport returns to the Northern Nevada skies this year for the 58th time, September 14th through 18th! And that means you can now purchase tickets for the STIHL National Championship Air Races.

What do we have in store for this year? Well for starters, we recently announced the military performers for this year’s event. Here, fans will be able to witness the unparalleled power, awe-inspiring maneuverability of the F-22 and F-18. Watch as they thunder past the grandstands during their demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday of race week! You won’t want to miss these performances!

What else is there, you may ask? First, we have the seven racing classes going head-to-head at speeds that can exceed 500 mph. And next of course, the civilian and military flight demonstrations. If you’re looking for a more hands on experience, you can check out the static aircraft displays, the GRADD-NVBAA STEM Education Discovery Zone. Got a thing for old, beautifully restored aircraft? Then the National Aviation Heritage Invitational is for you. And finally with food, merchandise and drinks to cap everything off, this year’s event is one you won’t want to miss.

Tickets can be purchased at or by calling 912-470-5773 or emailing [email protected].
