AUTO CENTRAL - October 12, 2020: On November 9th, 2020, Arcadia Publishing will release its newest “Images in America” book by yours faithfully entitled “Bonneville Salt Flats” with a foreword by SoCal’s revered speed pioneer Alex Xydias.

This tome driven by photos, not deeds and speeds, allowing me to select evocative images from the archive to cheerlead the non-racer into experiencing land speed racing. A chronology from 1914 to 2020 with 9 chapters, the 128 pages hold more than 200 images, including three specialty chapters solely devoted to: 1. Women Racers - Ladies in Nomex, Helmets and the Record Books! 2. Motorcycles - Monocycle to the World Land Speed Record Holder. 3. Thrust Powered Speed Machines - The Fastest Hot Rods on Earth.

Flash! 1st time in print: EVERY car & motorcycle that ran at the Inaugural 1914 time trial thanks to stellar illustrator Robert "steady hand" Rampton.

With a friendly retail price of $21.99, the idea is to entertainingly educate the general public about this marvelous sport of ordinary people repeatedly doing extraordinary things. Additionally, it is hoped the 6-inch by 9-inch book will elevate public consciousness about how important it is to restore Bonneville to safe racing conditions for amateurs.
