"I've got a '69 Chevy with a 396, Fuelie heads and a Hurst
on the floor. She's waiting tonight down in the parking lot..."
- Bruce Springsteen
"Racing in the Street"
Just rolled back into town the other evening from a shoot that planted me in Wendover, Utah.
The Bonneville Salt Flats to be precise.
It was the annual gathering of men strapping themselves into their machines and hauling ass down a never ending straightaway in their quest to set a land speed record.
I've come to the conclusion that the ink in the record book never dries - as new speeds were being conquered left and right. A couple of vehicles traveled down that lonely track at 400+ mph. Hell, 200 mph is pretty fast in my book... now double it and add a few more.
The moments did not unfold too fast for this kid to capture and I think it would be fair to say that we gave it a pretty good run.
