This photo may not show any of the fancy cars or streamlined motorcycles of Speed Week. It hardly shows the flats. But it does show the spirit of Speed Week. It shows the community that gathers on the salt every year to see, talk and hear fast cars. It shows the life behind Speed Week. I don't think I've gone to Speed Week and not made a new friend or two. People come from all over the world to see this event. Once everyone packs up and leaves, the flats go back to being the flats. You would never know what records were broken or space shuttle cars were driving on this salt just weeks before. The community remains, even in the far flung corners of the world, and will return year after year. I hope to be there for every one.
