We’re here and it is officially ON! The 68th running of SCTA Speed Week is shaping up to be a great one. Three courses are built on the salt, hundreds of race cars are going through tech inspection and racing is set to begin in the morning. The pent up excitement of racers can be felt and the environment on the salt is electric. Everyone is smiling, happy, and read to let ’em eat!
We cruised the salt today to start bringing you the best coverage on the inter webs from Bonneville Speed Week 2016. We’re going to run you over with racers, fun, hot rods, and whatever else we can dig up here as well. Look for daily results posts, who’s running hard, who is blown up, and who may shock the world with big speeds and performances no one saw coming.
This is the opening salvo! The salt is ready, the cars are ready, and we’re ready too!
