Many car enthusiasts dream of one day taking their cars to the limit at the historic Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah. However, The Flats, the name given to a 45-square mile area of flat barren land coated with a salt crust, are rapidly deteriorating. Located where Lake Bonneville once existed, the salt crust is rapidly depleting and today only about an inch of salt remains. The Bonneville Salt Flats have served as the location for numerous Land Speed records, and are a vital part of the history of American automotive performance. Here's how you can help "Save the Salt!"
The "100th Anniversary of Bonneville" will be celebrated at the 65th Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California from January 24-26, 2014. A book entitled "Bonneville: A Century of Speed" will be on sale during the show, with the entire price of the book going directly to the Save the Salt Foundation. The book will also be available for sale online after the show is over.
Sponsorships are also being sought in the form of Board of Directors, Guardians, and Salt Mine categories, with donations of $3,000, $1,500, and $500 respectively. The donations will go directly to the Save the Salt Foundation to restore and preserve the Bonneville Salt Flats.
