One of the biggest traditions at Bonneville Speed Week is the Nugget Car Show that happens Friday and Saturday night at the Nugget Hotel and Casino in West Wendover Nevada. Friday night has everyone hanging out, telling stories, partying and anticipating a great week of record on the Bonneville Salt Flats. Many cars have already been out on the salt by this time, or are staying at the Bend in the Road, so they have awesome salt build up on them that makes them look like something straight out of the 1950s. It’s awesome, even if it does make me nervous that the salt is going to eat them away in front of my eyes. That stuff is no joke!
Thankfully our man on the street Wes Allison is at Bonneville grabbing all the photos he can over the next few days so we have plenty to share with all of you. As you have come to expect tons of photos from Bonneville Speed Week here on BANGshift.com, we do not want to disappoint and are doing everything we can to make sure you get as many of these cars that are on the salt as is humanly possible in a day. That means that we’ll have a bunch of galleries over the next few days and expect you to check out each and every photo and let us know what your favorite rides on the salt are.
