    I mostly shoot soccer now. When I was young and fancy free I lived in a volkswagen camper van and followed open wheel racing (midgets, sprints, champ cars, indy cars) nationally.

    I'll be gone the rest of the afternoon but will revisit the forums tonight or in the morning. There are others on TPF that have shot drag racing.

    One of the reasons you may not be getting any replies is..... you haven't yet asked any questions about the kind of tips you're seeking.

    Photography is pretty much the same no matter what genre you are shooting so having a good understanding of how your equipment works is a key to solving problems.

    What is it you're having problems with?

    Nitro, I photograph diesel sports, mainly tractor pulls. But, it is good practice for drag races. You need to practice panning and your timing. Try going to a tractor pull, you have less than 20 seconds to take a photo. Talk about great practice.
