If your coming to Reno from the East on I-80 you're in for a rush. The speed limit has been raised to 80 mph in rural areas coming down from Winnemucca. http://www.nydailynews.com/newswires/news/business/nevada-joins-handful-states-spans-80-mph-driving-article-1.3162190

When I first started making Vegas runs back in the 70's, the speed limit in the unpopulated areas of NV was "safe and reasonable". Back in those days, I drove a Jensen Healey and could make it from Riverside to Vegas in under 3 hours.

While no Jensen Healey, my vintage beauty might be just the thing for those wild open roads ...

Google maps now says my best route would be down thru Winnemucca. https://goo.gl/maps/LMH1195Pg4D2 Cool!

Very Nice, wheels, but say far away from Tonopah unless you like subsidizing
their Gov. speed traps.
