Howdy, I'm Dwight and I'm going to Speed Week for the first time this year.  I'll be camping (sleeping in the back of my pickup) at the KOA.  Is it allright to bring my dog to the races each day?

I'm not sure dogs are allowed on the salt. Check with SCTA/BNI.

Thanks for the heads up...I'm a newbie but I know what the So Cal Timing Assoc is, but what does the BNI stand for?

Howdy, TDog.  Why camp in your truck at the KoA?  For the amenities -- like water and electricity and showers?  if so -- I understand.  If you're just trying to find a place where it's legal and safe to park and sleep -- there are options from near the Bend in the Road to the parking lot for the new Museum in East Wendover.

Oh, yes -- and KoA has wi-fi -- I think.  Whatever you do, thanks for asking -- and look us up once you get there.  See you on the salt.

Ok, I just did a search and went to the scta-bni.org website.  I don't see anything (yes or no) about dogs in the spectator section.  I'll post the question in the Bonneville 2014 section of this forum.

Hey, Dwight -

A few folks bring their dogs, but gosh, walking around on salt all day - I question as to whether it's fair to the fuzzy companions.

I've seen little leather sox made for some dogs on the salt.

KOA is a good compromise on the shower/limited amenities aspect, and you're right up the road from just about everything.

See you in August!

Yeah, I keep thinking that although my dog loves to ride along...she might be better left behind for this one.  She does like to mostly sleep all day and she can stay in the shaded back of my truck.

The shade in the back of your truck will be well over 100 deg. Dehydration is fast. BNI is Bonneville Nationals Inc.

Syd - there will be some British tin running about - might make you feel right at home.

Stop by Salt Talks - I'll put aside an Old Speckled Hen for you.

Thanks Chris...I've got some OSH downstairs right now..looking forward to drinking one with you

Even w/o a credential you will be able to get enough fotos for more stories

than you can write. A credential is the least of your worries.

Trust me.

This will be my 141st trip since 1963.

Wow...the least of my worries..that sounds ominous! I hope I've got everything planned so I don't need to worry, though perhaps 'ignorance is bliss' and I won't know what's hit me till I get there. I normally plan quite well, but I'm at home right now rather than at the Goodwood Festival of Speed because I kept forgetting to send in my accreditation request and when I did, I'd missed the closing date.

  Turbo,  A few years back a friend and fellow racer brought his unneutered male dog to Speedweek and I noticed he was laying in the shade with bright red cajones (if you will) as a result of Sun rays reflecting off of the salt.
  Unless you have booties, eye protection, ear protection (noise) and ... er, uhh, "underslung protection", I would leave the pooch home.  Dogs do hot do well in heat, and need to be well hydrated and misted with water constantly in the Bville environment.                 Bob

Hi Im Sandee, (re) new to this forum. I do a different kind of LSR- 1HP over 50-100 miles. It's all I can handle.
Will be at Bonneville this year for the first time. Wouldn't miss the "Century of Speed" for anything. Ive met some of you in real life. Thanks for having me.  :cheers:
