This is a first and first for me! First outing with my new D200 and First Car Race I've ever shot! DSLR's are quite common at this event so it was no problem getting mine and the 80-200 in. (I was worried for a bit!) Let me start off by saying, I hate the fence, and Oval track fences have to be thick to prevent the mayhem from spilling into the crowds.. So That and the fact that I don't know the D200's AF system as well as I would like, made for some frustrating moments. BUT in the end I just ended up sticking as close as I could and giving up on panning shots (They move too fast to get pans and then you get fence lines anyway...) SO heres what I ended up with! My favorite pic.
