As much as I want to go watch Kings of the Hammers sometime, the race is so spread out it seems difficult to watch much of the race without staying at Hammertown for most of it.  So after spending an entire Saturday last October watching the Live coverage of the Nationals (may or may not have had it on during a wedding reception), wife and I started talking about going to the Ultra4 Nationals event in Reno this October.  We will be out there Wednesday-Monday of race week.

The nice thing about the Reno event is you can watch the entire race from the grandstands at Wild West Motorsports Park near Sparks, Nevada (https://www.wildwestmotorsportspark.com/).  Plus with this setup you can walk through the pit area to really get a good look at the rigs and meet drivers etc.  

I have included a few highlight videos from the 2016 Nationals to give you a better idea of the setup there.

So with all of that out of the way, anyone else going to be at the races???

Any recommendations for things to do other than watching the races on Friday and Saturday???

Go to Virginia City and check out the old town and bucket o blood saloon.  Right over the hill is Lake Tahoe and casinos, sight seeing, etc.  Mustang ranch is about an hour east of the town  Cougar  I'm not sure when the Reno air races are, but they are wild...  Double Thumbs

Pretty cool car museum in Sparks as well.

Good to know on all of the above. I know we plan to drive most of Lake Tahoe one day and to check out the Car Museum in Sparks too. Thought about making stops by some fonthe fab shops around Reno and Sparks while there too.
