Speaking Intro Sitting across from me today is the Legendary Gary Spencer! He fell in love with land speed racing and the Bonneville Salt Flats at young age when his dad, Richard Spencer, started taking him out to the races over 60 years ago! He moved on to drag racing, where he drove funny cars and currently races motorcycles. But eventually shifted his focus to land speed racing and getting a red hat. It took ten years but he eventually gained entry into the Bonneville 200 MPH Club in 2008 in his stock body ’71 Camaro with a record of 250MPH. He currently holds three records in this car and has a top speed of 260MPH. Gary is passionate about racing, the Bonneville Salt Flats and represents the best of the land speed racing community.
