Well, they haven't posted a detailed schedule yet, but the last couple of times it started on Saturday.  And, their website says Sept 10 (Saturday) to 13.  I would expect Tech to be open on Friday, Sept 9.

In order to put the rumors to rest, we will be hosting the World of Speed this year.  Racing will start on Saturday September 10th and continue until Tuesday September 13th.  You can check our website, www.saltflats.com for up to date information.
Having said that, there is more I we would like to share with you.  We are confident that we can provide a very good short course as well as an additional track for the 130/150 vehicles and the Volkswagen's. We will do all in our power to find and make ready a viable long course.  We do not want to promise something that we cannot deliver.  We are going out during the motorcycle event to scout possible locations, this will include looking at the international course. We will post updates on our website, Facebook page and here, stay tuned for more information as it becomes available

My plans are to visit this event for the first time without a entry.  But, I'm going to include some sight seeing on the way up and back.  If there is anything I could do in terms of making a detour to get anything from your house to the races you might check with me.  Have some room, not a lot.  Dallas-Albuquerque-Vegas-Ely up there.  Wendover- Kanab-Farmington-Sante Fe, Dallas back.  Looking forward to the event.

Dennis Sullivan and Larry Volk are currently on the salt scouting for possible track locations and layouts.  They are meeting up with Tom Burkland as he is already there working the BMST event.  I am headed out this weekend and will start dragging.  I will post updates and photos as the work progresses.

Glen, our rooms are at the Rainbow. You will need to contact Ellen to find out what day she started your reservation.  See you there and bring your voice with you!

By the way, Monte - great article in the USFRA newsletter.  Anyone who hasn't read it should.  They will come away with a greater appreciation as to what it takes to put on these events.

Good luck this year, and be safe.

One late night, many years ago, Nancy and I got the pleasure(?) of driving one of those old drag trucks to try to make a funky course good.  The truck was one of the old beasts, all right -- it had many modern cornveniences, but lighting wasn't one of them.  We were asked to stay about 100 feet behind the other truck - that did have lights.  I was to try to stay in line -- but dammit, with both a pretty lightning show going on towards SLC and Nancy sitting next to me -- well, I guess I know why I haven't driven a drag truck since then... rolleyes

Thank you Chris, coming from a writer such as yourself, I take that as a sincere compliment.  Hope to see you next year with the Midget!!!!

It's kind of strange how each event I spend several hours beforehand just sitting on my buttocks in the drag truck, but then once the racing starts I spend several hours standing with not much time to sit.......one extreme to the other.

Jon, I think I remember that year.  Was it by any chance the year that Ron Hall set a record with his Studebaker Avanti?  I seem to remember the salt was especially bad that year and we did some dragging at night to smooth things as best we could.  And yes one of the drags left weaving marks all the way down and back!
