Bonneville Speed Week has been an annual event, weather permitting, since 1948. Hundreds of racers and spectators from across the U.S. and around the world congregate on the Bonneville Salt Flats for some of the fastest racing in the world. While there’s lots of information to be gleaned from the pits, it’s the starting line of the “long course” that always draws us in. It’s where drivers and riders get ready to make their runs, where engines come to life, and where crew and fans listen intently to the radio as announcers relay the results from the timing equipment.
