Overview: The future of land speed racing at the Bonneville Salt Flats is in jeopardy! The once 13-mile racetrack at Bonneville is now less than 8 miles due to salt erosion. It is critically important that the U.S. Department of the Interior contributes funds toward a 10-year restoration program that will dramatically increase the amount of salt pumped onto Bonneville. You can help restore the Bonneville Salt Flats before it's too late. Please urge the Secretary of Interior to fund the Restore Bonneville program through the department’s FY 2020 budget.
Please feel free to personalize the letter and write about what Bonneville means to you. For example, include a sentence at the beginning describing what it is like to race on the Bonneville Salt Flats or attend a racing event. Also feel free to amend the title of the email to say: “I visit” or “I race” at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
