If you are a car enthusiast, eventually you will be introduced to land speed racing and the Bonneville Salt Flats. The August "Speed Week" 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.
