ALL vehicles are allowed to run every day, weather and conditions permitting. There are no special days for motorcycles or cars, etc.
There is no camping ON the salt. EVERYONE must exit the salt at dusk.
Private campgrounds and hookups are available in nearby Wendover. Free camping on BLM land West of the salt near bend of the road.
You can purchase entry passes daily/weekly at the entrance to the salt.
Spectators are allowed to walk through the pits, view the vehicles, and talk to the drivers and crew members. Public parking is south of the pit area, on the west side of the race track, outside of the cones.
Be sure to bring a hat, and shade from the sun. If you intend to set up a 'semi-permanent' spectator area, you must secure a tarp as a floor covering on the salt. Don’t forget your camera and bring lots of film, because you will want to remember everything you see. Binoculars are also a great idea since the race vehicles are at least 1/4 mile away as they travel down the course.
There will be vendors located on the salt for food, refreshments, eyewear, sunscreen & much more.
