Help Save the Bonneville Salt Flats
The Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah, not only serve as a place to race, but a piece of automotive history for car enthusiasts all over the map since its discovery back in 1896. What used to the ancient Lake Bonneville has since dried up, leaving a white salty crust where Land Speed records have been shattered over the decades. However, problems have arisen as the salt is quickly diminishing, leaving only about an inch of salt left on the famous Salt Flats. Here is how you can help “Save the Salt!”
A celebration of the “100th Anniversary of Bonneville” will be held at the 65th Grand National Roadster Show located in Pomona, California, from January 24th-26th, 2014. During the show, a book called “Bonneville: A Century of Speed” will be sold and the entire proceeds from each book sale will go to the Save the Salt Foundation with the book still available online after the show ends.
If you can’t make it to the show and would still like to show some support for the Salt Flats, you can be a sponsor through donations of $500, $1,500, and $3,000 if you’d like to help purchase the salt necessary to restore the Bonneville Salt Flats.
