It’s almost midnight in Wendover, Utah, on August 7, and I just arrived in town (late, as usual) to start off the BangShift.com coverage of the SCTA/BNI 2009 Bonneville Speed Week. Racing starts after the drivers’ meeting tomorrow morning, and I’ll be there on the starting line and in the pits bringing you breaking news, photo galleries, and videos for most of the week. Keep checking back for more!
While I got here too late to see the big hot rod cruise in front of the Stateline Casino (it’s the Nugget now, but everyone knows Stateline), there were still a few rods in the lot, so the coverage starts below with a quick video and some snapshots of cars that have obviously already been out on the damp Salt. It’s drizzling a tiny bit right now, hopefully for the last time this week!
