    I had the opportunity to take pictures at this event, it was alot of fun and a whole different set of challenges with mixed lighting and showing motion yet keeping details sharp. I am taking this year to shoot alot of different types of events to gain skill. I keep telling my wife this is my education:biggrin:, she is a big supporter and actually pushes me out of the house to learn. My goal is to shoot motor events on a professional level.

    a jet tractor, this was wierd to listen too as it spooled up for the pull.

    This mini is driven by the Shop foreman? for Gravedigger, and this is basically the same motor as Gravediggers. We all know how it moves the monster truck can you imagine that motor in a 2000 pound vehicle including driver:eek: 
    around 1 horsepower per pound:smile:
