Bonneville Speed Week Photos: More From The Famed Nugget Car Show!
(Photos by Wes Allison) Every year, Bonneville Speed Week is kicked off with the Wendover Nevada Nugget Car Show, and anyone and everyone is there to hang out, check out cool cars, and enjoy a few adult beverages. No Bonneville Speed Week is really complete without the Nugget Car Show that kicks off Friday night and gets HUGE on Saturday night. It is THE place to see and be seen and everyone is there even if they have only come to Bonneville for the first few days of Speed Week. It’s a great place to enjoy a beer or several, with service from the Nugget Casino and a bunch of really bitchin rides all around it. And everyone is on hand telling stories of the first full day of Speed Week and it just can’t be explained unless you go. But we’ve got all the photos and have split them into three galleries of the Saturday Nugget Show so here is the first one and we’ll have more tomorrow too! And if you haven’t seen our other galleries, click the link below to see them all.
This year Bonneville’s salt conditions are going to be the talk of the town, with only two courses set up rather than the three or four that have become the norm in recent years. To make matters even more interesting there has been big rain that started Friday night and went through Saturday and that means the start of racing has been delayed. We still have photos from Friday both at the Nugget show and on the salt, so check out the first gallery below and use the link to see our other galleries as well.
We’re not sure that racing is going to happen at all because of conditions, but we have photos from Friday and Saturday to share so we’ll keep bringing you whatever we can get!
