Visit the Save the Salt booth in the Central Hall (booth #24099) of the 2017 SEMA Show to see the Turbinator II, which ran 435.875 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats, September 17. Attendees will be able to view the machine and ask questions about a vehicle that is challenging land-speed records.   

The Salt Flats possess rare physical qualities that has made it a perfect land-speed racing venue since 1914. SEMA, along with other organizations and companies comprising the Save the Salt Coalition, are working closely with federal and state government officials and the adjoining potash mine owner to restore Bonneville. Since 1997, the racing community has worked to return salt each year, but it is a long-term project.
