(Photos by Wes Allison) Bonneville Speed Week 2021 officially starts tomorrow morning with cars, trucks, streamliners, lakesters, and more hauling ass on the salt at Bonneville. But no Bonneville Speed Week is really on before the Nugget Car Show that kicks off Friday night. There are a jillion people that come to Bonneville Speed Week to watch, but the biggest crowd shows up sometime Friday and spend Saturday and Sunday watching the action before heading home to wherever they came from on Sunday night. That means that the Friday and Saturday night car show at the Nugget Casino is THE place to be on Friday night in Wendover and there is plenty of beer flowing to celebrate.
This year promises to be an amazing year at Bonneville with all kinds of new cars making their debut and some old cars coming back out for the first time in years. Plus, the piston engine and wheel-driven all-time records are being aimed at with everything people can throw at them this year. We’ll see how the salt is, but we’re hoping for some big things this year at Bonneville.
As we say, this is our first gallery of photos and we’ll have tons of them coming throughout the week as we have Wes Allison on-site to shoot everything he can point a camera at. We’re going to make sure you have all the photos you could want and are going to start it off right with this gallery tonight and another one in the morning. Check it out!
