    good capture Troy,

    BUT WE NEED MORE SHOTS!!! I had a chance to get right next to the cars today but I had to work. My friend works for the contractor that had set up the race.

  4. Troy I echo the sentiments... WE NEED MORE SHOTS! That one you posted is very nice and contrasty, and the follow focus worked like a charm.
    OK, did I blow enough smoke up your skirt yet? :)  Post some more, me likey!

  7. Why not, everyone else was!! That gives a whole new meaning to "shoot from the hip", and being on target too. Where'd you learn that skill? :)

    As a side note, one of the owners of Champ Car lives pretty close to me, I understand that his home is fantastic. I have yet to see it (an hour drive away), but I have heard it has all the ammenities. And he owns a racing team as well. He and his partner were experiencing difficulty obtaining race engines from Cosworth Racing, so they bought Cosworth Racing from the Ford Motor Company. Now that's taking the bull by the horns.

    Hey frank. That would be Kevin Kalcoven. Not sure about the spelling. He has a pretty big check book. :eek:
