This video was from the very beginning of the 2023 75th Annual SCTA Bonneville Speed Week. In addition to streamliners and race cars running on the Bonneville salt flats setting land speed records, each night there is a very cool custom and hot rod show at the Nugget casino in Wendover Utah. Join us for a lap to take a look at some of the cars on display at Bonneville In 2023! There are everything from gasser Corvettes, 1932 to 1934 Fords, Chevrolet Impalas, and all kinds of other hot rods and customs in this video.
The Bonneville Salt Flats are home to the Southern California Timing Association SCTA Speed Week, and 2023 is the 75th year of the event. Each year, Hot Rods and Customs converge on Wendover along with all the land speed racing cars, motorcycles, and trucks to set world records on the salt.
Not many people can say they’ve set the record for piston-powered, wheel-driven streamliners, but not many people are Danny Thompson! Coming from a rich racing heritage started by his famous father Mickey Thompson, Danny had the remarkable opportunity to race in a variety of forms and bring his dad’s vision to life… while setting records of his own. Kevin Oeste chats with Danny about these and many more stories on this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we do!
