Thread: Bonneville Speedweek 2021

    Bonneville Speedweek 2021

    This year is shaping up to be one of the fastest Speedweeks in history so long as Mother Nature continues to cooperate.

    The hot young stripper wife and I will be on The Salt August 6-9 so pack your bag and come on out.

    Currently three courses have been groomed. Course #1 is 8+ miles long and will be up to 10+ miles by race day. Course #2 is 8+ miles long and Course #3 at this time is set up to the 2 ¼ timed miles. The salt is smooth, hard, and durable, the thickness of the salt has increased modestly, however the distribution is far more uniform which has led to a smoother and harder surface. The course layout is the same as last year except they are adding course 3. Some of our old timers say they have not seen salt this good in 50 years.

    For those heading out to Bonneville Speedweek... the recent rain storms have missed the salt flats and we should have the best salt we've had in over 30 years.... records are going to falls.

    UPDATE 8/2/21:

    We have been surrounded by terrible weather for several days, but somehow Mother Nature has shined on us! We got a little rain yesterday, but thanks to Mother Nature, it did not affect the Salt one bit! All 3 courses have amazing Salt! Still the best in many, many years! The forecast is for sunny skies!

    We made a ton of progress today. The pits are coming together. We also picked up a ton of trash that had been left behind by other folks. A special thanks to our volunteers for that!

    As for progress on the courses: Course #1 is all dressed up! Completely groomed, mile markers are in, turn outs are done, the return road is in. Courses #2 & #3 are also groomed & signs, turn outs, return roads are all in progress. Surveying will be completed in the morning.

    Things are really taking shape. About the only the only thing missing is you! Pack all the fast stuff & we'll see ya soon!

    Beautiful day on the salt! All three courses are ready to go. Return Roads, Course Signage & Turnouts are complete. The pits are almost ready. Security will start tonight. Don’t forget that Inspection starts Thursday morning. The salt truly is the best in years on all three courses – Firm, hard & smooth.

    I just received this...

    Holy s***, 3 microbursts back-to-back wiped out our hard work. It's looking bad but definitely nothing we can't deal with. We will be rebuilding the courses all day tomorrow. Any crews and team members who would like to help see me in the morning, and we can use your help! 951-923-3635 or CB channel 1

    Alright... the salt is still good to go but the wind caused some damage... racing is still set to begin Saturday morning.

    UPDATE #6 (8/5/21):

    Registration/Inspection started today and ran smoothly up until closing time. NEWS FLASH a windstorm hit the salt, winds pushing 80mph! Cones, signs, tents, awnings, etc…were blown away. That being said, if you are coming onto the salt tomorrow morning, please understand there will be workers everywhere. Please be careful and watch out for the workers. Inspection/Registration opening will be delayed. If you have any available crew to help with resetting everything, please come to the Registration Trailer – We will be meeting at 7:00 a.m. but we will except help at all times.

    Bring your own drinks and food. In the morning hang out at the starting line, which will be the big group you see to the south.

    Yeah...you gotta pay for it one way or another, huh?

    Isn't it funny how much easier it was when we were young and didn't have any money?

    Yep, there are plenty of women out there who are just fine with exploiting their body and good looks to get ahead financially. They relish the endless supply of cash and constant attention because most of them realize that their beauty will eventually fade so it's best to take advantage when they're young and able.
    It's only "science" if it supports the narrative.
