  • Need a mop on the salt

    They had heavy rain around Bonneville last night. Racing is postponed, but not yet cancelled. Over 300 entries sit in Wendover while the water is ankle deep on the racing surface. Click image for larger version

        Salt dogs are a patient lot. We'll see. The water moves a lot on the salt depending on the winds, and so on.

          Studemax is right. Sometimes it drains and dries quickly and other times it - doesn't. Will hope this is one of the quick drying times.

            It's officially cancelled. Apparently more water was coming down from the mountains, and it wasn't going to dry out anytime soon. Oh, well - next race is the World Finals in October.

              Bummer. I always feel bad for all those folks who have traveled (some from other continents) who can't even race. But that's LSR........

                Here's what happens when you don't follow the orange cones on the salt. See the tow strap? Took 2 other trucks to get this idiot on the road. Now he's headed to the car wash....

                  It sprinkled through most of the night on Friday. There would have been a good chance of racing by Tuesday. These are a couple of pics of the Saturday night rain from the Nugget show that that ended the week.

                    And the water is gone on Saturday morning. The last 2 days it was windy & hot, which dried out the surface. You can see a single tent sort of in the middle.

                        Saturday night the storms returned, and this morning it's Lake Bonneville once again.
