    Hey guys I am gearing up to hit the salt for the third year. We leave in the am and be on the salt Thursday morning. First year we were rained out, last year my motor was hurt and I only was able to best 109 and change.
    This year I have rebuilt a lot of the motor and trying some new things. For the first time since I finished my car I feel really optimistic about goi g faster. I don’t know what that means but I feel good and the car sounds great. I am very excited.. we are filming for Stormin Bonneville 2 and I hope we get some good fast speeds. It’s always easier said than done but I am enjoying the ride and filling my dreams.. wish me luck

    I'll be browsing in the pits and stop by with my son. I watched your Youtube video/attempt last year, hoping you get a new personal best. The salt is supposed to be excellent this year.

    Bonneville has always been a blast even when we broke or when the water came up to the access road. The people behind the scenes are great. Car racing doesn’t get much better than being out on the salt

    Starting the morning by motoring out to the starting line before the sun comes up is an experience that all car guys should have

    Good Luck and enjoy!
