SpeedWeek at Bonneville Salt Flats

auto racing

The Southern California Timing Association and Bonneville Nationals Inc. organize SpeedWeek, the largest meet of the year, which attracts several hundred drivers who compete to set the highest speed in a range of categories.

Bonneville Speedway

Bonneville Speedway is an area of the Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah, that is marked out for motorsports. It is particularly noted as the venue for numerous land speed records. The salt flats were first used for motorsports in 1912 but didn’t become truly popular until the 1930s when Ab Jenkins and Sir Malcolm Campbell competed to set land speed records.

In October, the Southern California Timing Association puts on World Finals, a scaled-down version of SpeedWeek.
