According the the Utah Salt Flats Racing Association (USFRA), the 2015 World of Speed event, scheduled for September 12-15, has been cancelled due to salt conditions. Their August 29 posting read, "After many hours of looking for, test dragging and inspecting the Bonneville Salt Flats on August 28th the USFRA team was unable to find a long or short course that would sustain or provide a safe venue for a 300 vehicle, multi- day event. It is with heavy heart and great disappointment that the World of Speed for 2015 is canceled." For the latest updates on USFRA visit Utah Salt Flats Racing Association on Facebook.
