Well,I'm impressed.Thumbs up.
Yes- I had media credentials. I was real close to the action. In some cases- I was right next to the cars.
Camera I took was my back-up- I walked off & left the other bag at home.
It's a Nikon D100 & a 70-300 old Tamron AF zoom lense.
Here's the last of them I'll post. They get pretty repetitive after awhile.
We hung around in Phil Lukens pit all weekend. Not much luck for Phil- this pass got him 1st alternate. Had blower rotor & clutch issues.
My friend Steve Metz on left & me on right. This is where I camped out for 3 days.
Only pic I took in the swap meet area.
Great pics from some great races. I dig the pic of Roland Leong and Don Prudhomme...
Excellent pictures. I could smell the rubber and fuel. I heard they didn't finish Sunday.
My friend Steve, Don in middle, Blake Bowser & me discussing the antics of a famous drag racer's son.
