Named the #1 Air Show in America in 2017, the National Championship Air Races usually roars into the Reno Stead Airport every September. Undeniably iconic to Reno Tahoe, it’s the world’s only closed-course racing event and attracts fans from around the globe. This year, the event will not be held with audiences in the stands, but you can relive the heart-pounding excitement of past races from the comfort of your home with a replay of past races on Facebook.
The National Championship Air Races is the last event of its kind, carrying on the tradition of the Cleveland Air Races of the 1920s, 30s and 40s. For one week, the high desert north of Reno becomes home to hundreds of aircraft, their pilots and crews. Over the past ten years, the event has attracted more than 1 million spectators.
Starting on Saturday, September 19, you can tune in to the Reno Air Racing Association’s Facebook page to watch the 2018 and 2019 air races, including biplane, Formula One, jet, sport and the always popular unlimited divisions. The 2018 event will stream on Saturday starting at 9 a.m., and 2019 racing action will continue on Sunday, September 20 at 9 a.m. Check out the complete race schedule and relive the excitement of watching your favorite planes and pilots compete for the top spot!
