Bonneville is Back Again

As many of you salt flat racing fans know, the Bonneville Salt Flats have been in such bad condition that the SCTA racing event has been dormant for two years. This year the SCTA is holding the event after a good salt report for both the long and short course. Many people are heading in that direction and others are already there. I have visited the Bonneville Salt Flats but never during the racing events. It is on my bucket list for the future. My friend Bob-O wants to go one more time and I hope to go with him. I have friends who are racing and hold class records. They are die hard Bonneville race fans and are looking forward to the adventure in Utah. I wish them all the luck and safety needed to run at those over 200 mile per hour speeds.

I pray for good weather for the racing and for some new records to be set. Speed is King in Bonneville!

 

Stay Tooned!
