    I found turn 2 last year when I didn't have media passes, It was even better this year, I took some 2000 pictures in 2 days...lol. at different places on the track.
     
  6. JPM finally won a race, but then he should be at home on a road course.

    Great series of photos - I'm quite green with envy of your access :)

  7. Wonderful shots; thanks Bill! I particularly enjoyed this race since it was exciting to the end. I still don't understand why it takes three lasp and eight minutes (filled with repeat commercials) to remove a piece of metal from the track.

  8. Great stuff Bill! Very proud of your work (and envious too!) - you took great advantage of the access.

    I saw one shot on the speedwaymedia site with a partial hood of the #60 (Boris Said). Did you happen to get a shot of the whole car showing the hood or at least a shot of the full hood? I'd love to have a hi-res shot of that as my last name's Raley. :redface: (would only use it in my personal racing stuff collection!)

  12. Cool Bill - Thanks very much! I think that's a one-off deal for Raley's and since he didn't win there likely won't be a die-cast of that particular paint scheme.
     
  13. Great series of shots Bill!!! Looks like you had a great time.

    God Bless,

    Thanks everyone, I shoot a lot of Races and I think I got my best from this track, There is a lot of great locations to shoot from if you have media access.

    Bill Great photos. I realy like the 24 with the template, fixture, Claw thing, I have yet to see a photo of this yet. The shots from turn 2 are nice perspective. I wish they raced on road course for 34 races and oval the other 2 races. I like the fact a driver can give pass a try with room for eror and not "hit the wall and end their day" The natural road courses in this country are under used.
     
  17. Great shots Bill! Love the Gordon template shot. How do you about getting a media pass for NASCAR?

    Thanks, Anthony

    Love the photos. I really like the shot of the 24 car going through inspection. I wonder if they had failed it at that point.
