Mike Cook’s Bonneville Shootout has been going on since 2006 when Mike and Mikey Cook decided that there needed to be an event on the salt that catered to the guys that wanted to go really really fast and be able to set FIA records. The course is 11 miles long, has to be run both directions, and is THE place to be for streamliners. This year there were less of them than last year, but that didn’t stop some serious players from running some serious speeds, and Zane got us all the good stuff. Speed Demon once again kicked ass, setting two records, one of which was 439 mph with George Poteet behind the wheel. In fact, every single streamliner, bike, or car on the property set a record except for two who were there just for testing. That shows you just how good the Cook family is at prepping a track. In fact, if you look at some of Zane’s photos you will see how rough the salt is outside the racing surface.
Big thanks to Zane for the photos, you definitely have to check out the rest of his stuff too.
