If you are a car enthusiast, eventually you will be introduced to land speed racing and the Bonneville Salt Flats. The August event is organized by the Southern California Timing Association and Bonneville Nationals Inc. Not surrounded by the hyper commercialism of TV racing that has become part of our common culture, land speed racing persists, powered by ingenuity and the spirit of endeavor. For me it contains the essence of what originally caused me to become interested in the automobile. It still retains a wonderful purity of spirit. This is a place for real hot rodders.

A note about these daily galleries. Each night during the SCTA Speed Week I post a quick web page of hastily selected highlights from that day. The daily web pages are not carefully edited and seldom cropped. All the photos taken during the week, not being considered for editorial publication, are later carefully prepared and posted to my Zen Folio site. There you will find the prints and and digital files for sale.
