2014 Grand National Roadster Show to Celebrate Bonneville Centennial
The past, present, and future of Bonneville Salt Flats racing will all come to life at the 2014 Grand National Roadster Show. The event will be held at the Fairplex in Pomona, CA, on January 24-26, 2014.
The "Century of Speed" exhibit will celebrate the 100-year anniversary of land speed racing at the Salt Flats and raise awareness of the current "Save the Salt" campaign. The display will feature 100 of the greatest land-speed record cars and motorcycles of the past hundred years. There will also be a special gathering Thursday for the vehicles’ owners to enjoy the exhibition before it opens to the public.
The show’s theme is "The Quest for Speed." Attendees will see more than 500 show vehicles competing for awards inside all the other buildings. Another 400-500 show vehicles will join the event, making it the oldest and largest indoor hot-rod show on the planet!
The book Bonneville: A Century of Speed will also be premiering at the 2014 Grand National Roadster Show, in the Century of Speed building. A limited first edition of just 2,000 copies will be produced in hard cover. The books will be numbered and carry a retail price of $24.95. (There will be a special price of $20.00 offered to show attendees.) All of the proceeds will go towards supporting the Save the Salt Foundation.
