Something you probably don't see very often, a Packard Bonneville salt flats racer. Picture from the 2016 races held during the last couple of weeks.

That's the most streamlined Packard I ever saw! How did she run, win anything?

The Packard with car number 1942 set a very nice record of 171.911mph at Speed Week 2016, driver Jerime Cope.
