    I'm pretty sure it's called tracking - when you pace a car with the camera. Anyway take a look. I am looking for suggestions on how I could do this better. Thanks

    It is called panning. Your shutter speed is way too slow. When the car isnt that fast, I wouldnt go slower than 1/40. Here is some I did. These were taken about 1/40 with cars going about 25-30 mph.

    Also it will help if you set your auto focus to AI Servo (not sure what the NIKON term is).
