Ely Air Races

June 13 - June 15

$15 – $50

Watch the world’s fastest motor sport, the featured Formula One Pylon Air Races at speeds up to 280 mph at historic Yelland Field, site of the second air flight in Nevada history, the first to reach 10,000 feet. A static military display with aircraft from the Nevada Air National Guard and the Commemorative Air Force will be on the tarmac, plus there will be private aircraft, T-6 and sport-class airplanes, gliders, parachuting demonstrations, a car show, and hot air balloon rides.
Ely is already home to the Silver State Classic Challenge — the world-record setting, first, and longest-running open road race, and Fears, Tears, and Beers, the oldest mountain bike enduro race in America.
Be a part of history at this inaugural event, and spend your vacation in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
