One great thing about attending Speedweek at Bonneville Salt Flats is that there’s something for everyone. You get to watch all sorts of vehicles leaving from the same starting line, all seeking to break the record of whatever class they’re in. And just like in the “good ol’ days” of hot rodding – the only thing anyone really cares about is going fast! But until I get to sit behind the wheel and drive down the salt at record breaking speeds, I’ve gotta pay attention to some of the other details that just might not have anything to do with speed!

As I write this my dad’s throwing the last few things in the truck, Craig from MyRideIsMe is on the road to meet us in Vegas, and then we’ll be off to our first ever experience of speed weekat the salt flats in Bonneville! I’m super excited to experience this event – the last frontier of home-built racing machines. The fellas at MyRideIsMe.com will all be there and together we’ll be tag-teaming coverage of the event while we meet tons of cool people, watch things go fast, and learn more about people and their cars.
Needless to say there will be some very cool pictures and stories to be told when I get back. Not only that, but I’ve been busy back in LA the past few weeks…stopping by Loyola Auto Interiors and getting some tips by Luis on my headliner (so I can finally post that story up!), learning how to tune my engine and do bodywork from Matt and Department of Customz, and getting ready to throw a new exhaust system on Stude so she’ll be ready for Primer Nationals in a few weeks!
Okay…gotta go…till ya hear from me again, Happy Trails!
