    Just got back last night, I'll try to post a few different shots. Seems like we are drawn to the same cars when taking pictures.

    He's posting them now... you'll have to refresh or come back to see what he's posted. So, yeah, slowpoke... get on it! :D

    You photographed cars I didn't even see there, crazy how that happens.

    Thanks. I have about 250 frames, but I didn't want to post duplicates of what's already been posted. I'll see if I can get some different ones up.

    Thanks for the pics. They turned out better than mine. I am hoping that somebody will posts some pics of a '36 Chevy Coupe that was there. It was radically modified for racing. The only time that I saw it, I wasn't carrying my camera.

    Nice pictures. Do you have any of the RP in my avatar. I was pushing the white 494 streamliner.

    Thanks

    The 911 34 Ford roadster went 281 on a 279 record for a new record. They are trying to be the first 34 to break 300 mph. That's a good shot of it on the line.

    Nice photos dude!

    Yes, that's the Cummins/Beck/Davidson Roadster. That car is most definitely capable of setting a record over 300mph. I'm pretty sure I heard someone say it had actually been over 300 on a run, but it was at the exit or something like that.

    The 911 is a very fast car with a good crew behind it.

    The car I crewed on (Christeson & Stuck #299) is also capable of setting a record over 300, but Ed had problems (spin-out) this year. He has already been over 270 unblown, and just added a 14-71 to the Donovan this year. I don't know of any other cars in the roadster class that might be able to go over 300 at the moment.

    I have some video of it firing up at the line with a full load of nitro. If I can figure out how to post it I will. It is some great footage of an awesome car.

    Okay, you will agree that I am a shitty photographer...but really enjoyed Bonneville. Don't want to hijack the thread, but here are a few....

    And a few shots of our deal...J/GBL Lakester....first time with our turbo (other than setting a record at Loring a couple of weeks ago) and we had some teething problems after getting real close to the record after 5 runs. Realized what we needed to do and packed her in. MANY thanks to those guys who helped us out!!! We cannot wait to return the favor!!!

    Mike Roman did a helluva job driving and is anxious for a return either in October or Speedweeks 2011! Yep, he has one leg and has overcome 40 surgeries. He feels honored to be able to drive with the Best of the Best.
