    Unfortunately I was in seats that had the fence right in front and they wouldn't let me take pics from the concourse, but I think I got some decent panning ones, fence aside. What do you think?

    Nice work on the panning shots. Next time, bring your wire-cutters and fencing pliers and get rid of that pesky fence!

    nicely panned. yes, a bit under-exposed (dark).

    zoom in closer.....that's do some good with the fences.

    I wish I could have been infield however I got the tickets for free so I didn't really get the choice. Infield passes were $100 per and that was only pre-race. I need to get in with a newspaper or some media outlet so I can get a press pass and get right up against the fence.

    Here are a couple other panning ones that I think came out really well (again except for the fence)

    heh. Good luck trying to stand next to the fence too they frown upon that. Atleast to the tracks I've been to, I dunno about loudon. I would imagine that it's all about money and if you could produce it you could get a press pass. Of course you would also need press creds as well.

    At the Loudon Speedway they frown up on you standing still to take a picture anywhere but in your seat. I understand due to safety reasons....it's just a pain!!! Even the press photographers have this little cage that they have to shoot through to keep them protected.

    buy a $2500 RV and you'll be good. then you can watch the race in comfort and be in the infield.
