RENO, NV. — Hot August Nights, the nearly week-long hot-rodding extravaganza in the biggest little city in the world, is off and running.

Our cameras are out, capturing as much of the action as possible. Peruse the slideshow to check out some of the action here, where automotive enthusiasts have overtaken an entire city through the upcoming weekend.

If you’ve never been? Put this event on your list. It’s automotive nirvana.

Here’s a small taste.
