Venue Details

Utah has a long and siginificant history in racing and Rocky Mountain Raceways is PROUD to keep that tradition going.  The history of racing in Utah began with the Bonneville Salt Flats.  A long stretch of hard salt surface perfect for getting early racing automobiles to reach their top speeds.  Racing began in the salt flats as early as 1925 when Ab Jenkins, driving a Studebaker, beat a special excursion train by ten minutes in a race across the flats.

Since that time the Bonneville Salt Flats have attracted racers from around the world and have become the site of numerous land speed records.  Through the early 1930?s to the 1970?s many world land speed records were broken here.  In 1938,  the Englishman George Eyston’s Thunderbolt traveled more than 345 miles per hour sparking a friendly rivalry of racers between Malcom Campbell’s Blue Bird and John Cobb’s Railton.  Each breaking one another’s records.

During this this time, many early great racers came to Bonneville.  Greats like Shirley “Cha Cha” Muldowney, a pioneer in women’s drag racing with her trademark pink rail.  Drag racing legend Jerry Ruth, the “king” of Northwest drag racing also raced here many times. Bonneville was surely a destination for racing greats and their fans.

In 1995 a local racing fan, Spencer Young from the Young Automotive Group approached Bonneville to buy and remodel the facility.  This was the beginning of Rocky Mountain Raceways.  The facility was expanded to include a state of the art quarter mile drag strip and an oval track.  With a brand new facility, professionally run tracks, s
