The Reno Air Races and Air Show are held in the high desert about 10 miles northwest of downtown Reno, just off US395 in Stead, Nevada. The entire complex of over 5,000 acres (race course, pit and hangar areas, grandstands and concessions) is located on what started out as the Reno Army Air Base and is the current home to the Reno/Stead Airport, the Nevada Air National Guard, and a base for the Bureau of Land Management's fire suppression aircraft.
