    Nice work as always....Very cool second image with the front wheel just off the pavement....Looks like the driver in your last pic is getting a little bent out of shape...Like I could do better...:biggrin:

    Cheers

    Excellent!
     
  4. lol thanks Ted. I'm amazed by how squat and wrinkled the slick is in that 2nd image of Greg's Pro Stock bike. That last shot is Doug Vancil, current #1 plate holder in Top Fuel. Hey cocks the wheel to the right like that on every pass. Looks kooky but seems to work for him. :cool:

    Thanks!

  6. Very cool pics.

    About 15 mins down the road from me.....
     
  7. Thanks again!

    Here are a couple shots which show the nitro-methane fire out the exhaust on the far side of the bikes. Love the sound of these when they go by about 12 feet away lol.

    Love image #2 the bokeh and the heat distortion behind the bike makes this capture stand tall. For anyone into cars or bikes that hasn't been to a top fuel event you are really missing out. When you're 200 feet away from a drag car when it launches and your chest caves in from the over pressure that's top fuel... You have to experience it to believe it...... :biggrin:

    Cheers

    Great shots Mike (nice to see our BG Tonda Logo in a lot of your smugmug shots)
     
  10. Thanks Joe. Is this the shipping business, or the data browser? Was wondering what BG Tonda was and the reasons for their sponsorship of the drag strip.
