I know the salt this year didn’t live up to the hype, but the hype and anticipation of racing is half the reason we do what we do. Here’s how I prep for a week out on the salt.

Speed Week this year is August 10-16, 2019. The date evokes a little anxiety for me…as I examine the “to do” list for both land speed cars, car carriers, tools, equipment and spare parts; I reflect back on the previous years that we have been running at Bonneville.

It was late in the afternoon during the middle of the week. I had just walked down to my shop, Bad Andy’s Speed Shop, when I heard a vehicle pull up to my door. A nicely dressed gentleman stepped out of his sports car and walked over to several of my classics sitting in the drive. I had backed them out earlier, in order to get to one of my other projects to work on.
