corvette-paradeSelect vintage race cars from the field of 100 competing in the Reno Historic Races May 1-3 at the Reno-Fernley Raceway, will parade through downtown Reno Thursday, April 30 starting at 4:30 p.m.

While the historic race cars will hit speeds of up to 185 MPH on the track, they’ll travel a bit slower on their parade route from the National Automobile Museum parking lot on the corner of Mill and Lake streets, through downtown to be showcased in front of the West Street Market.

The racecars will remain downtown until 8 p.m. as part of the Reno River walk District’s first Art Walk.

The Reno Historic Races, now in its 6th year, is honoring Corvettes with Grand Marshall Bob Bondurant.
