Our Bonneville Photo Coverage Just Keeps Coming. Check Out Photos From The Salt Right Here!

If you don’t keep up with our Bonneville coverage each year then we have to question your standing as a gearhead. After all, there is something so pure and special about this place, that knowing it is happening and not following along would almost seem to be a crime. We don’t like to harbor criminals around here, so we think that looking at these photo galleries is the least you can do to keep your gearhead standing. We told you we’d have more photos coming and we weren’t kidding. In fact, we have even more coming as we’ll be bombarding you with them throughout the week from this abbreviated Speed Week 71 at Bonneville. 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 Chad for making us feel like we were there. One day, one day… I hope I don’t keep saying it for ever.

    Thank you Chad for capturing my husband and fam. The blue 5005. I couldn’t be with them due to being the “new guy” at a new job. Thankful for those wonderful pics of them.

    I went in 2011. One of the dozens of amazing things I saw was the lack of umbrellas and minimal EZ Ups. In staging, it looked like no one was trying to get out of the sun. The SCTA/BNI lost tribe have no peers when it comes to operating in a very inhospitable environment.
