Landspeed Louise is working on a new edition of her famous "Bonneville Salt Flats" book - and is hoping for some help from us -- today's (and yesterday's, too) racers and workers at Bville. She sent the following release to me and asked that I put it up on the site. Please read through it (there's a second and third page that you'll need to click to find), and her contact information - - and most important, a list of questions which answers will give her the information she wants from each of us. Please have at it - and note the deadline, too. Thank you very much.

100th Anniversary edition
“Bonneville Salt Flats”
“LandSpeed” Louise Ann Noeth
Bonneville Salt Flats: the Fastest Place on Earthis being updated and republished to mark the celebration of 100 years of racing on the salt in 2014. I have joined forces with the University of Utah Press to publish a book that will now include another decade plus of racing action. Much of the original book will stay the same, but I am picking up the action in 1998 and adding to the historical record concluding with the close of the 2011 racing season.
This means I am looking for not only interesting highlights from each year, but also top quality photographs and speedy personal tales from the racing community.
Every interview yields more names, more stories and more information to gather, people to contact and facts to check.
The window of opportunity is very small.....
