Racing on the Flats

By Linda Tancs

The Bonneville Salt Flats in northwestern Utah is a flat expanse of white salt crust on the western edge of the Great Salt Lake basin, measuring 46 square miles.  Named for area explorer and Army officer Benjamin Bonneville, the area is on the National Register of Historic Landmarks because of its contribution to speed racing.  Welcoming trucks, cars and motorcycles, the World of Speed annual racing event takes place from 7 to 10 September.
