I was able to visit my first air race in Reno this year. My husband and I loved it. We were able to enjoy the vendors with goods & food. We were also able to see the planes up close. It was a fantastic experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 2015 Air Races! The pit pass is worth the extra cost. Food vendors had so many choices. We'll make sure to bring sun protection next time!
