    Here's few from the dragstrip the other night. I hadn't seen these in years and they didn't disappoint. Shot from the stands with the D300, 70-200. The night shots were a bit of a challenge.

    Thanks Chris

    I'm thinking about going to the Saturday night show. The Top Fuel cars at night are awesome. Looking forward to see your pix.

    He put on quite the show. It burns 150 gallon of jet fuel per querter mile pass. That's a fuel bill I wouldn't want.

    Sweet! Ive been working all week so I havent had the chance to post, but should get them up this weekend. When I was going through our pics, we just couldnt get the wheels to stop motion in the pics, but hopefully we'll get that fixed for the Nationals.
    I just got my tix for the Nationals the other night. Got the tix for the Saturday night runs since they are going to have the jet cars and everything rollin that night... I cant wait. This is my first experience with the Top Fuelers, and I hear they are awesome. My boyfriend grew up in Epping, so hes got the experience when it comes to the drags, Im new to it all but I cant wait to hear the Top Fuelers. Heard they make quite the noise! (and I thought the Jet cars were loud enough!!).
     
  9. Very well done! The night shot is most impressive. They must've been very loud.
