Search Wendover Utah

In Tooele, Wendover is located on the Nevada border along I-80 near the Bonneville Salt Flats, where the B.L.M. offers the automobile land speed record speedway.

The salt flats were a source of table salt, magnesium and potash, which reduced it from 96,000 acres in 1926 to about 25,000 today. Racing, driving, and even walking is limited to B.L.M.-designated roads, because the salt crust has become so thin in places.

There is no overnighting at the Flats, and Wendover (approx. 1,250 population) has the nearest lodging.

In 2005, after a 90 year break, this annual cultural event, now called the Malad Valley Welsh Festival, once again became a reality.
