Or, see for yourself at the LandRacing.com homepage, where they have a countdown clock for Speed Week.  It’s going year ’round for those with Salt Fever.

Speed Week 2010 is coming to Bonneville Salt Flats - hot rods and race cars

Here’s a little taste of the Salt from Speed Week 2009.  Dig this flamed 5 window coupe hot rod and yes, oh yes, a Studebaker Avanti.  That’s a teaser for a feature coming up on another certain Avanti you guys will love.

Speed Week is THE coolest car show around!

Speed Week 2009 Nugget Casino Car Show in Wendover, NV

One of the great “unofficial” events at Speed Week is the first 2 nights (the night before races start is night #1), there is a big gathering of all those racers, crew and hot rodders who’ve made the trip out.  It goes down at the Nugget Casino (across the street from Montego Bay Casino as you can see in the pic above) in Wendover (about 5 miles away from “lands end”).  It’s a great time to get everyone in one place and meet new people and just hang out.

According to SCTA-BNI.org, Speed Week 2009 had 504 vehicles (cars and motorcycles), 3110 runs down the Salt where 178 records were broken!  It is action packed for sure!

Hope to see you guys at the world famous and historic Bonneville Salt Flats August 14-20.  100 days to go!

See you on the Salt!
