A SEMA-supported resolution urges the U.S. Congress and Utah's congressional delegation to take action to ensure that the Bonneville Salt Flats International Speedway is restored to safe racing conditions.
   

The Utah House of Representatives passed a resolution (HCR 8) that calls on the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to restore the Bonneville Salt Flats (BSF). Despite Bonneville’s rich history of racing for more than a century, the salt flats have significantly decreased in size, strength and thickness under BLM’s management, as the agency has allowed salt brine to be channeled away from the area.

The SEMA-supported resolution urges the U.S. Congress and Utah's congressional delegation to take action to ensure that the Bonneville Salt Flats International Speedway is restored to safe racing conditions. The resolution now awaits action in the Utah Senate.
