Once again Bonneville salt flats echo to the thunder of motors as scores of super-racers flash across the course. Records fall like autumn leaves. MLS - Big boys and their toys. MCUS - Mechanics surround one of the racers "Body Shop". CUS - A couple of the cars on the salt flat. CUS - A timing device for the cars when their racing "Oh my, is that old fashioned, or what?". MLS - One of the racing cars going by at top speed. CUS - Men's heads turn as they watch the cars go by. MCUS - One of the timing referees with the timing device. MCUS - The winner presented a trophy shaking hands. MCUS - The sports enthusiast applauding showing their approval. CUS - The designer of the winning car gets a kiss from a young movie star.
