Utah Valley University – Orem, Utah, Nov. 11, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Bombshell Betty Racecar to be Reengineered and Restored
By UVU Students to honor the Legacy of its Owner
Orem, Utah — “Bombshell Betty” — the iconic 1952 Buick, famous for its unique appearance and six land-speed world records at the Bonneville Speedway in Utah — is being updated and reengineered to break the 200-mph mark with the help of an unlikely group — students at Utah Valley University.
Students studying metal fabrication, engineering, aerodynamics, electrical systems, computer science/data acquisition, surface treatments, electronic controls, and engine performance will collaborate with faculty and workforce professionals to create a vehicle designed to travel at 200 mph.
“It’s a great opportunity for our students to learn project and time management, teamwork, organization, hard work, and the satisfaction of completing a job,” said Jeff Holm, UVU Transportation Technology professional in residence. “The car has a very unique appearance and draws people’s attention regardless of where it is.”
The car’s improvements started more than three years ago by its owner, Don Cash, Jr., but was cut short when he tragically died on the summit of Mount Everest in 2019. Holm, Cash, Jr.’s friend teamed up with Don Jr.’s daughter Danielle, and father, Don Cash, Sr., to continue the restoration as a tribute to their friend, father, and son.
“It’s an emotional ride for us to complete this car,” said Holm. “I can’t help but think Don is looking down on us and smiling to see his car being completed and driven by his daughter.”
The project began again on Oct. 15, 2020 and is scheduled to be finished by September 2021, which will make it possible for Cash, Jr.’s daughter Danielle to race the car at the annual Speed Week on the Bonneville Speedway.

In 2009, approximately 30,000 lives were lost on our Nation’s highways Although 30,000 reflect a 28% decrease in traffic fatalities since 2006, much can still be done to address this issue on our Nation’s highways Traffic crashes are the primary cause of debilitating injuries in the United States and the number one killer of Americans under the age of 34 In addition to staggering emotional costs, the annual economic loss to society because of these crashes, in terms of worker productivity, medical costs, insurance costs, etc , is estimated at more than $230 billion Clearly, there is a need for dramatic improvement in motor vehicle safety Getting unsafe vehicles off the road is integral to improving safety and saving lives.
The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act (originally enacted in 1966 and now recodified as 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301) gives the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the authority to issue vehicle safety standards and to require manufacturers to recall vehicles that have safety-related defects or do not meet Federal safety standards. Since then, more than 390 million cars, trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, motorcycles, and mopeds, as well as 46 million tires, 66 million pieces of motor vehicle equipment, and 42 million child safety seats have been recalled to correct safety defects.
Manufacturers voluntarily initiate many of these recalls, while others are either influenced by NHTSA investigations or ordered by NHTSA via the courts. If a safety defect is discovered, the manufacturer must notify NHTSA, as well as vehicle or equipment owners, dealers, and distributors. The manufacturer is then required to remedy the problem at no charge to the owner. NHTSA is responsible for monitoring the manufacturer’s corrective action to ensure successful completion of the recall campaign.
The purpose of this Motor Vehicle Safety Defects and Recalls Booklet is to answer the most commonly asked questions about how and why recall campaigns are initiated, and to inform consumers of their rights and responsibilities when a vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment is recalled. In these pages, you’ll discover how to report a safety-related problem to NHTSA, as well as how participation by citizens like you helps to keep motor vehicles as safe as possible. See the following section for comprehensive answers to some of the most frequently asked questions (FAQs) NHTSA receives on recalls.
