And we know it isn’t just the racers who feel this need, but also all you fans out there. Luckily for you, my son Cole and I have been shooting everything we can on the salt and have a bunch of cool photos available for you to check out this afternoon. We’ll have even more photos tomorrow and the coming days, as Bonneville Speed Week 2017 still has several days of racing left to go.
Lots of racers have gone home with their records in hand, or in some cases parts, but those that are left are looking forward to more great weather and more great racing. And speaking of weather…, it has been unbelievably beautiful and nice up here. Some years you can almost feel your skin blistering while sweating and baking under the heat of the sun, but this year we’ve had amazingly nice weather. Still hot, but not sweltering, and with some nice clouds and a breeze or two you feel pretty darn comfortable.
The cars have really liked the weather as well, so racers are either hauling ass or having trouble hooking up. Either way, they are certainly fun to watch.
Here is our final photo gallery of the day.
