    Picture a friend took yesterday. Since he was going by I asked him to send me a picture. I guess he thought i wanted a selfy. But what salt you can see looks good.

    Just about a moth away now. Anyone else ready to go?
    I really feel like I have unfinished business to settle out there. In 2013 our competitor reset the record. I simply don't like the guy, And after 3 years my only goal is to shove the record down there throats in front of the world. JC

    That's actually pretty sad.
    The salt flats and the spirit of land speed racing at Bonneville is a lot more than that petty attitude.

    I've never been to the salt but hope to get there one day.

    Good luck to all competitors, go out, be safe, and kick some ass.... or salt.

  24. Sorry, won't have the small ones this year. We were barely able to get the normal one done.
    And they are done, just picked them up from the printer, and we will have a limited amount.
    I will be posting a classified ad, and updating my web site
     
  25. Put me down for one as I have never missed getting one for many years now.
     
  26. Got my room at the Nuggett and will be driving the new 3 window out this year.....Can't wait as we have missed the last couple years.
    Everyone that has this on your bucket list best be making the trip this year......Ya just never know might be the last of the races....

    I am down the road at the Quality Inn. Last I checked, they still had rooms, oddly.

    Not a penthouse suite, by any means, but do-able.

    After all of the rain the last two years lets hope for a dry August through October so that all of the meets can be held this year.
