Long, fun day, with a LOT of walking! I've got the blisters and sunburn to prove it. :frown: These are just a few samples of the "action" we saw there. :cool: Dunno how the trackside photogs do it. The big boys in top fuel were absolutely scary when they made their runs, and the noise and the vibration was out of this world!

Hi Steve,

I like the samples that you posted. The second image where you cropped very tightly is amazing...love the detail in the slicks and the heat vapors. I did watch a couple of the runs today but some home projects put the end to that right away. I was looking for you along the track but you never did wave to me...I even sat directly in front of the television and yelled out your name!!! :eek: The image of your boys was very nice as well...the young gentleman on the right is playing football I hope! Oh yeah, and the images of the trackside ladies...very nice as well. Keep more of those images coming Steve, you did an awesome job. If the pro shooters would have shot from somewhere else and the concrete crash walls were lower, that sure would have helped...but you did well with your vantage point. Job well done, sir! :cool:

Thanks everyone,

Haven't had much time to go through all the shots yet. These were more or less just a random sampling of them. Will post some fo the others when time permits.
And Frank, ya, I agree, the shooting location wasn't the best, that's for sure. Probably should'a taken the top row seats that Tickmaster offered, instead of row 2.
