Bonneville: 100 Years Of Speed

By May 6, 2014General Posts

S&S Cycle, in cooperation with the Bonneville Speedway Museum, is offering a special limited edition 100th anniversary Bonneville t-shirt to commemorate a century of land speed racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats. After all, S&S has a long history of racing at the “great white dyno.” S&S company founder George J. Smith set his first record of 152.02 mph on his 92” knucklehead “Tramp II” in 1954.


The shirt was designed by the S&S Marketing Department’s graphic design team in Viola, WI and has a great looking Bonneville graphic on the back and the Bonneville Speedway Museum logo on the front. Available in any color you want so long as it’s black. Shirts can be purchased directly from the S&S website and through the gift shop at the S&S museum. All proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go to the new Bonneville Speedway Museum, which is under construction in Wendover, Utah even as you read these words.

Wendover, Utah Mayor Mike Crawford and local Bonneville enthusiast John House recently announced that they have set aside a five-acre plot of land on the eastern end of town, right off Interstate 80, where they plan to erect a 25,000-square-foot building that chronicles not just the history of land-speed racing on the Bonneville Salt Flats, but also the story of the Salt Flats and the town of Wendover’s contributions to land-speed racing.

Show your support for Bonneville land speed racing and help build the new Bonneville Speedway Museum – and look cool doing it! Buy a Bonneville 100th Anniversary T-shirt now before they’re all gone!
