As you probably already know, as of today, there is no museum commemorating all those pioneers who raced the Salts of Utah (there was a small one, defunct 14 years ago.) 18 months ago, Wendover, Utah Mayor Mike Crawford and local Bonneville enthusiast John House announced that they had secured a five-acre plot of land on the eastern end of town, right off Interstate 80, where they planned 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.
Getting the Donation of the Property was a huge undertaking in itself, but phase 1 is now completed with road access approved by Utah Dept. of Transportation.To begin phase 2, the organization is still looking for donations, architecture design help, advertising and web hosting support etc, anything and everything you can think of able to help this important project. If you think you can help in any way, please contact Mayor Mike or John a call at 775-664-5338 (O) or 309-241-4715 (C) Thank you.
