RENO, NV (JAN. 17) – Racing Preview for this week has everyone mainly in the Re-Run Zone again. There are a few live events to watch but this situation will soon change in a week or so.
Locally there is an event, Reno Coffee and Cars will have another gathering on Sunday. Of course this will depend on the weather but as of this writing it looks good.
These gatherings have everything from exotic, muscle cars to the not so exotic. Still it’s a good time a everyone gets to check out a bunch of vehicles.
