"It is with heavy hearts that we write this to let you know that, after nearly 60 years of air racing in northern Nevada, 2023 will be the last National Championship Air Races at the Reno-Stead Airport." release from Stihl National Championship Air Races at: National Championship Air Races | Reno Air Races
-The 2023 races are scheduled for September 13-17
-Where they are moving to is evidently undecided at present. Reno has been the event's home for the last 59 years.

That is really sad and to be honest, it was bound to happen sooner or later due to the explosive growth (development) in the area.

Joe had even mentioned a while back, that he thought the air races' time was limited, especially when I said "want to see developer frenzy? Put an airport in the middle of nowhere and wait a few years..."

That comment was relevant to Lancaster/Palmdale, but he brought up Reno-Stead and the encroaching development as a side comment.
