Event Coverage 2019 Speedweek (pics added 8/13)

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by RMR&C, Jul 11, 2019.

  1. 2019 Bonneville Speedweek is about a month away.....August 10-16.
    Who's going? Anyone heard how the salt conditions are this year?
    I am planning on going again, if all the planets align....

  2. The on site camera shows the salt as great, except were some AHoles tore it up for a tire promotion.
    SCTA should be headed to the salt to start grooming.
    Next weekend is El Mirage lake bed fix (all SCTA racers please show up) and load up for Bonneville at the SCTA building at the lake bed.
    The July meet was cancelled because of bad lake bed conditions, so the first land speed event for the West Coast will be Speed Week, so there should be a boat-load of racers heading out, with untested motors.
    I have been lazy and working on DD hot rods and have not finished the motor swap on the Salt Circus roadster, so it will be a interesting Speed Week
  3. I think im going

    Too many money eating events in the next three weeks that take up all of my fun tickets for the rest of the year. For what we are spending on going to my nephews wedding of the century as planned by his fiance I could have easily afforded to pitch my little tent beside Jethro's camper and played kid in the tent outside down there with the cost of gas and food being the main expenses.
  6. IMG_1399.jpeg Gonna take it back and try again.
  7. Going to miss this year. Just busy is all. But, there is hope. The new girlfriend expressed interest in racing AND she will fit in the lakester ;)
  8. Anybody else going?

    Sure would like to go again before I can't. About the only thing preventing me is the lack of a place to sleep and the fact that my I made plans to be at a rod run in Colorado. Ah, maybe next year?

  19. I am planning to go, look for me in the 52 GMC pickup, usually try to set up and hang out around mile 2.5-ish, between the vendor area and fuel truck. Have extra shade to share! GMC Bonneville.jpg

    I get a calendar every year, I just used the link, so you can skip the postcard this year.

    Could you please throw in a window sticker? I did not see how to do this on the order page.

  30. I've had pretty good luck getting a room at the casinos from Sunday or Monday on. By then all of the weekend gamblers and spectators have cleared out.
