For the past two years, the famed Bonneville Salt Flats have been without the roar of triple-digit engine noise. This week, thousands of drivers from around the world are back to break records and just go really, really fast.


Some Thunderbird's out on the flats from years passed.

Yep, Mickey Thompson's son just recorded a speed over 400MPH out there earlier this month.

It has been on the news a few times recently here in Salt Lake. It has been tracking the story of Danny Thompson setting the land speed record his Dad never fully set.

This article had some youtube links to Danny Thompson's engine dynoing if you want to take a look

My only regret was not getting the time freed up to drive for an hour out there and spectate. :(
