    It's need a few years since I've been to the track. My Cousin's kid was competing this weekend at a local track, so I decided to hang out in the sun for a few hours.

    My ex brother-in-law used to race. He has more metal in his body than most new cars:apathy:

    Thanks. Even though we had to stay outside the spectator fence, there were some good spots to shoot from. (Good thing I have a 300mm f/2.8 ;) )

    Yes, it is pretty much not if but when you crash racing. This was his boys first race back from injury. We saw a couple of crashes that guys had to be helped off the track, luckily not on backboards.

    Great set, Ron. My one thought would be to maybe drop the shutter speed a hair, just to get a little motion in the wheels.

    Thanks John, I totally understand what you are saying. We were at 1/2000 at f/4 most of the day. It was just a very sunny (hot) day. I did try to do a little panning at 1/100 and f/11 but only got about 2 images that were okay.

    Very nice.
    I'm waiting for my local drag strip to open up so I can get some action shots.
