Atco Dragbike

  1. Went to this weekend's event at Atco, NJ, as a crew member for my friend with a Top Fuel Harley. In between changing motor oil and pushing the starter cart around, I managed to snap a few images. The AMA Dragbike series seems to be a very well-run sanction with a very friendly crew and racers. They have a very capable photographer too, to whom they give exclusive rights for sales (wish my regular racing santion was so generous LOL). Just some shots:

  3. Thanks Mark,

    I gotta take lessons from Jason on how to shoot cheesecake at the track. :biggrin:

    For some odd reason, I always have too much focal length when these images present themselves lol
