Awesome. I was there last year and three solid, enjoyable days were spent on the salt with my father and brother. It's a treasure.

Yes, it is a treasure, and every gearhead needs to go once, because you just can't imagine the incredible variety and strangeness of the vehicles you will see.

GREAT NEWS!! Pretty easy to be "socially distant" on The Salt....Very pleased that the money came loose to help rejuvenate The Salt.  As a many-year competitor I sent letters to everyone in that regard. It's gratifying that the "Save The Salt" program bore some success! Awesome, it's a start.

This is fantastic news. We are doing an "In Conversation" Live Interview with Bonneville racer Charlie Nearburg on 6/8 at 4:00pm EST- hope everyone checks it out!

I have my fingers crossed and I'm knocking on a wood that Hardman Racing makes it out this year and breaks a few records.

I just wish they would televise some of it.

Oh my! The they say the sky is falling! 🙂
How about large distances, few people, and strong breezes doing more?
No enclosed space, too.
