Don’t let the end of the road discourage you, the tracks and pits are at higher ground. Bill & Pat"

Think "they" are done - unless they want to wait a couple weeks for it to dry out - as long as no more rain occurs.

You gotta feel for all the racers...especially international teams.

There are multiple race teams there from Europe and Australia.

Proves again that Mother Nature and Father Time will always win.

I watched one of the videos of everyone driving through that Salt Brine.
I just could not help thinking about all the corrosion and rust those vehicles are going to have.
How many of those trucks, and trailers are going to get taken home, cleaned up, and sold immediately?

I look at all that water and wish we could swap with those heartbroken people. Here in So. Cal. were are restricted to one day of watering a week. And because of that the water companies are telling us to not water at all..., because one day a week the lawn will not survive.

I looked over the list of entrants and didn't see my friend (Mike LeFevers and Family) entered this year. Mike (Mitech Racing Engines) built the engine for what was the fastest stock body car (307+ MPH) Firebird that was on display at the NHRA Museum. I'm hoping for his sake the entry list is right and he didn't go this year.

Their people are at the salt now and will report on Saturday.

Unfortunately not much has changed in just a couple days.

Plus it raining right now with precipitation for all this week.

Bad for the racers, but Utah needs the water. Hope at least if the racers lose out that there is enough water to make a difference supply wise.

Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials Aug 27-Sept 1 CANCELLED!!!

"Cancellation of BMST 2022
Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials 2022, FIM Land Speed World Records and AMA Land Speed Grand Championship is Cancelled. Our assessment team has reviewed current Bonneville Salt Flat conditions by air and on the ground. Unfortunately, all BMST track locations and alternatives are still flooded from the initial storm and multiple subsequent storm systems. There is no possibility that the water will recede and salt will dry out sufficiently in the week remaining to support track preparations and operations."


USFRA World of Speed September 7-12 is still on as planned.
