While the Bonneville Salt Flats are outside Silver State borders, West Wendover is the perfect basecamp for checking out this otherworldly landscape. During Bonneville Speed Week, drivers in all kinds of racing classes will attempt to break land speed records on the salty terrain.

Take in whirlwind heats by day and let Wendover Will wave you back into Nevada by night.

Speed races have been happening on the Bonneville Salt Flats since 1912. Speed Week remains a popular draw, bringing competitors and spectators from around the world. Hot rods, motorcycles, diesel trucks, and more will “shoot the salt” in an attempt to get their name added to the land speed record books. As long as weather and course conditions are favorable, Speed Week attendees can watch one adrenaline-packed race after another. Just don’t forget your hat, sunscreen, binoculars, and plenty of water!

Spectators will be able to walk through the pits, get up close to vehicles, and meet drivers and crew members. A wide variety of vendors will be on site, too, offering food, refreshments, memorabilia, and protective gear.

Take in whirlwind heats by day and let Wendover Will wave you back into Nevada by night. A quick drive from the Bonneville Salt Flats, West Wendover offers plush casino resorts with everything from buffets to steakhouses, plus plenty of table games and slot machine action. A-list performers will take the Peppermill Concert Hall stage, too.

Bonneville Speed Week is $25 for spectator day passes and $60 for week passes. Tickets are sold on-site and cash only. Wanna race? The Speed Week pre-entry fee is $700, and $800 if you register at the event. Visit the SCTA-BNI website for complete Speed Week details and spectator information.
