Torrential rains on Thursday night 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. Well, that’s today. We spent yesterday walking the pits, getting a little sunburned, and snapping photos of tons of cool cars for you to enjoy. We’ll have another gallery or two running later today as well, but for now check out these beauties. We’re pretty sure that some of these cars will make you drool, and they have done that for us in spades.
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’ll have tons more photos to share throughout the week as we’ll be on the starting line first thing tomorrow morning to show you the baddest of the bad as they try to tame this challenging 2019 salt.
