Our Bonneville Photo Coverage Continues Right Here! Check Out More Bitchin Rides From The Salt

Bonneville is a very special place to us. I’ve raced there, I’ve been fast there, and it is a place that inspires, draws, and challenges you. It is historic, it is beautiful, it is a natural wonder. And it is the home of horsepower in so many ways. Torrential rains on Thursday night before the scheduled start delayed the start of the 71st running of Bonneville Speed Week as flooded pits, tracks, and return roads meant a dry out was in order. After assessing the situation, and monitoring conditions, it was decided that racing would not commence until Tuesday morning at 7:30 am.

We spent time walking the pits, getting a little sunburned, and snapping photos of tons of cool cars for you to enjoy. We’re pretty sure that some of these cars will make you drool, and they have done that for us in spades. We also captured the staging lanes, the starting line, and more for you to enjoy right here.

If you are not familiar with Bonneville Speed Week, or racing on the Bonneville Salt Flats in general, then some of these cars and combos may seem a little odd. You aren’t wrong, but odd is not that uncommon at Bonneville. In fact, it is one of our favorite things about this event as strange engine combos find their way into cars, trucks, and even motorhomes that never came so equipped. It’s one of the things that you learn to really appreciate about Bonneville.

We will have tons more photos throughout the week, so stay tuned for all of them.

    Thanks for your hard work getting these pictures. As aa member of the Mixed Nuts Racing team, we were honored to note that you published our car on your site. This year definitely needed a touch of patience but we had a ball just being with pour fellow salt flat comrades. We made 15 runs but the 1 mile plus 132 feet didn\’t allow us to see how fast we could get our little 283 engine to go. We all owe a huge debt of thanks to all the folks in SCTA and BNI for all of their hard work in getting the salt ready to race on. All of our singular efforts are shadowed by their work and commitment. Hoping for great salt next year.
