Ab Jenkins was a legend among Americans of his time (early 20th century). He consistently set land speed records—reaching speeds up to 275 miles an hour—and a few endurance records—of 24+ hours straight driving. Still he never seemed satisfied with what he had done. He always pushed to go faster and farther than anyone had gone before. And he was the man who brought speed racing to the Bonneville Salt Flats, making it the speed racing monster it is today.

Check out this trailer for the new Boys of Bonneville: Racing on a Ribbon of Salt movie.
