View Full Version : Bonneville Speedweek 2014

Just a heads up... August 9th thru 15th.

We will be on the salt... if you have never been it's a great time. Easy enough to drive out from Salt Lake City for the day.

Here is a video I put together a couple years ago.


From my own experience pack a cooler and snacks. Hanging around the starting line is where all the action is, that will be the large group of people and cars furthest south. I can't wait!!! The earlier in the week you go the better.... things are really hopping the first 4 days, after that things really die down as cars head home. There is also a big hot rod show Friday and Saturday night at the Nugget, which is free.

RADIO: The track PA system is also broadcast over 88.9 FM so you can listen over your car radio or bring a portable radio.


The Bonneville Speedway is located approximately 88 miles west of Salt Lake City, UT right off Interstate 80. Wendover is the closest town to the salt flats for accommodations, food, casinos & night life. The spectacular scenery and racing conditions at Bonneville make it one of the most popular areas in the world for speed.

Speed Week consists of seven days of racing in August and World Final is four days of racing in October.

ALL vehicles are allowed to run every day, weather and conditions permitting. There are no special days for motorcycles or cars, etc.

There is no camping ON the salt. EVERYONE must exit the salt at dusk.

Private campgrounds and hookups are available in nearby Wendover. Free camping on BLM land West of the salt near bend of the road.

You can purchase entry passes daily/weekly at the entrance to the salt.

Spectators are allowed to walk through the pits, view the vehicles, and talk to the drivers and crew members. Public parking is south of the pit area, on the west side of the race track, outside of the cones.

Be sure to bring a hat, and shade from the sun. If you intend to set up a 'semi-permanent' spectator area, you must secure a tarp as a floor covering on the salt. Don

Speedweek 2014 has been rescheduled for September 27 to October 3.

Actually it has been combined with the World Finals of Speed to create a week long event.... weather permitting :2thumbs:

The good news is if you act now before the Wendover motels hear about the change you can book rooms for $40. During a normal Speedweek rooms are $300 a night with a required 3 night minimum.

I have really got to make it out there. Hopefully I can make these new dates work for me, all of these years here and I still haven't made it out to an event on the salt.
