  5. Thanks Dave. Hey, I was in your neck of the woods this past Friday and Saturday. Helped my friend with his Top Fuel bike at the AMA dragbike races. Atco's a cool track, and the metric crowd was different than what I'm used to.

    You've got panning down, that takes some practice.

    I was going to ask if you were there - I guess you made out OK with the rain?

    I heard them running pretty good on Sunday.
  8. You have to be ust a little crazy to ride these .... nice capture.

  9. Friday was a bust due to rain (did enjoy dinner at PF Changs though lol). Saturday was good, and we got two qualification rounds in. His bike was acting whacky, though, and we couldn't figure out why because his Racepak data collection system was on the fritz. Although he won the Hannum's one-day race there in mid-August, he put it on the trailer and didn't make a pass on Sunday as with no data and running nitro he was only going to hurt something.

    This is the bike I was crewing for this weekend:

  10. Crazy helps :biggrin:

    Thanks. Was one of my shots used for a cover on our sanction's magazine this year.

  12. Excellent cover shot. Congratulations.

  13. Like Rich said, excellent capture. It's a nice feeling to see your work published. It makes your images a lot more tangible when they can be held and enjoyed by others...Keep up the good work...........


  14. Thank you

    Thanks Rich.

    It's a great feeling. It's been a great way to stay in touch with friends in the racing world after my bad crash. Had a few covers this year. Too bad it ain't SI LOL

    A couple more covers with my work if you're interested:

    It was fun posing these two great friends for this points-race shot of them back-to-back and getting them without smiles or laughing lol
