Reno Championship Air Races CEO Caps 2023 in Review

Despite the Challenge of a New Home, Reno Races Live On “To our amazing September Family,” Reno Air Race Association CEO Fred Telling opened his 2023 overview, “it would not be overstating to say that it has been one of the most challenging and yet highly successful years in our six decades as the Reno Air Racing Association.” The races, as many know, will be coming to an end at their long time home in Reno, Nevada. “Following notice from our airport authority, we announced in March that this would be our last year of air racing at Reno-Stead. While it was indeed a sad and undesirable announcement, you, our fans, volunteers, sponsors, racers, staff, exhibitors, and vendors, all made it clear early on that 2023’s National Championship Air Races would be a grand finale like no other. Initial ticket sales on opening day received such an overwhelming response that our servers crashed! They were quickly back in action, and the following months demonstrated that our September Family was going to be there in numbers the likes of which we have not seen in many years.”
