Fast Action Dirt Racing

Keeping with the “think warmer” theme I going to post a couple of photos from a few years ago when I was a track photographer at a local race track.  These were shot with a Nikon D100 and the cars were traveling approximately 120 miles per hour.  As the track photographer I had access to the infield and was able to get very close to the action. Although some would say to close, I was never worried.  I was standing  a mere 15 feet away from these cars for most of the photos I did that summer.

Now I’m really thinking about summer and the fun I had at the race tracks over the years.  If you ever have a chance to go to a dirt race I highly recommend going.
