Speed Week 2008 (Saturday, 23 August 2008)
Bonneville Speedway/Bonneville Salt Flats
Wendover, UT

Tokina 12-24mm f/4

We took a drive out to the Bonneville Salt Flats this weekend to catch a little bit of Speed Week 2008, where vehicles attempt to break world land speed records. Some of my favorite photos from the day:
