Trucks and Bonneville have gone together since hot rodders first attacked the salt flats after World War II, but not always in the role that one might imagine. Naturally, the majority of workhorse duty was handled by a truck. Hauling man, machine, and all necessary accoutrements, there wasn’t a better option in the early days. It’s much the same today, though what was contemporary 50 years ago is now classic and what’s contemporary today is mostly in the diesel form. What’s interesting is that today, the presence of classic trucks on the salt is stronger in the form of actual race vehicles rather than relegated to support status. And some of those trucks crank out some pretty impressive speeds as well. Not bad for a bunch of old farm trucks!
