Check in starts at 8:45 and ends at 9:30. As a school group, we are allowed to bring in lunches and strollers. There are plenty of food vendors at the races, so if you don't bring food, you can buy things there. Parking information will be given out closer to the event date. Tickets are required for everyone ages 5+. Normally, the cost is $10/child and $35/adults, and parking is normally $25/vehicle, so at just $3/person, this is an event you won't want to miss!
We are also delighted to have FIRST Nevada as one of our sponsors this year.

They are making it possible for our group to attend this year, so a huge thanks to them!
