Sadly, The flats were very wet with a layer of water in places. No activity was going on but it was still very Kool thinking of all the speed records set there! Worth getting off the Interstate to see it!

First off: this place was insane. We drove two hours from Salt Lake to check it out and I'm so glad we did. It is a giant, flat surface you can drive on and on for. Absolutely amazing and such a unique experience. To get...More

It was a beautiful day to take a ride out to the raceway, we were surprised to see that much water almost as far as you could see. Well worth a stop.

This was a bucket list check for me. What I didn't expect was when we visited in mid May the temps would be in the 40s, gusting winds and heavy rains. I would do it again in a heartbeat, but the weather sure took away...More

Okay-really-the salt flats are very uninspiring. But I mean really...who can pass up a 1 mile salt plain race track for speed tests. There is a nice plaque, there is some water ponds, and a tone of salt. Take some and bring it home I...More
