Default Bonneville Speed Week RAINED OUT


a) Pontiac Jack has always wanted to go (Pontiac Racer)

b) John Clegg has gone a few times (along with his son) (Pontiac Racer)
(ran a Trans Am) but I think Chebby Powered).

c) Richard Holdener (doing some Pontiac engines on the Dyno) has been there many times

d) I have been there a few times. For a while, no new salt in the great Salt Lake due to lack of rain. This rain could be a good thing.

Anyone else besides Mike and Eric showing any slight interest in going there at least once??? They mentioned they might come if I got the chassis car (64 GTO) running for that event at some point.

Bucket list item for me yes. Would love to go with Jack and crew for him with the coolest 4-cyl Pontiac engine I have ever seen.

Does the rain provide a zamboni effect to the salt flats?

Drove past on my way home from Reno. Lot's of standing water. Reno got nailed too.
