    Hello all. I'm heading to the speedway this weekend, but I've never shot cars before - jets and other aircraft, yes, but never cars.

    I assume that the best place to try to shoot from would be near the starting line...But do any of you have some lessons learned that you'd like to share from your experiences shooting drag races?

    The equipment available to me is listed below in my sig.

  2. Hey Chris,

    Might want to try over on the Planes, Trains, Automobiles & Boats forum. There are a couple of threads on the front page that might help.

    Best Wishes,

    You also might send a PM to BillK and ask for his opinion.

    Thanks for the suggestion, Frank.
