Bonneville track at risk
AMA Calls For Action
The land speed racetrack at Bonneville—once 13 miles long—is now less than 8 miles, due to salt erosion.
It is critically important that the U.S. Department of the Interior contribute funds toward a 10-year restoration program that will dramatically increase the amount of salt pumped onto Bonneville Salt Flats.
The AMA needs your help in urging Interior Secretary David Bernhardt to fund the Restore Bonneville program in 2020 from funds allocated by Congress.
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the Utah Department of Natural Resources, local company Intrepid Potash and the land speed racing community have identified a strategy and are collaborating to restore Bonneville. But without federal funding, the project cannot succeed.
