    Have a few shots here from two different races in the Carolinas. The first one is from the Big Dog Powerjam at Piedmont Dragway just outside of Burlington, NC during Friday qualifying. The second event was the Quick 8 Outlaws Automatic Doorslammers race at Darlington Dragway in Darlington, SC.

    When the sun went down and the lights came on I broke out the tripod to try for some long exposure shots. I got some fairly interesting results.

    Where are you near? Piedmont or Darlington, I'm assuming Piedmont. I've never actually talked to Stacy but I hear he is a pretty nice guy. Thanks for the compliments. I got lucky and had a friend who was working the Piedmont race for RPM Magazine and he got me up on the wall, and with Darlington; another friend is their official photographer and wasn't able to make it. He called me and asked me to fill in for him; I jumped all over the opportunity!

    Top Doorslammers are the sh!t [​IMG] Apart from the fact they seem to break down more than any other class :roll: well at least here they do.

    Nice pic of the mean green machine :)

    They are in fact a handful to work on, always something that needs to be fixed, but I love them. Thanks Poly.
