Default CB11 Dragstrip pics

It was unbelievably hot and humid, but we still made the trek to the dragstrip. And had a blast. When we got there my car didn't want to start, we think that the starter got to hot. After letting it sit for a while, it fired right up and made a few passes down the track. Some of the pics may not be the best, but it was like there was this haze from all the humidity. I wanted to give you guys a little taste of what it was like to be here today.


I let my brother drive my car and he had a blast !



It was so much fun to watch everyone having such a good time, you had big built motors against the stock guys.


The burnouts were half the fun.


For more pics, check out my album.

I checked your album, you got some pics. Looks like a fun day.

What kind of camera do you have? Just a tip, you need to use a slower shutter speed for shots like that. The wheels will be a blur, it will affect the whole image and give a sense of motion and speed. A fast shutter speed freezes everything, you really can't even tell the cars are moving.

Some of the cars made many passes. We saw this wagon so many times, and watched the back tires bouncing like crazy, we all agreed that the owner was really trying to break it.



Really liked both of these cars. Daved especially liked the wagon.

Hank, I had the wrong camera with me. We have 2 cameras and the camcorder with us, but grumpy went back to the hotel with my car, and I didn't realize I had the wrong camera until after he was gone.

I agree with grumpy, that black wagon is sharp.

We went to the race track for the auto cross tonight. Unfortunately, the trip down to the track got a late start. When we got to the track it was already after 5pm and they still were setting up the track. The event was supposed to last from 5-7pm.. It was 5:30, we were in the parking lot of the racetrack, just ran out of water and didn't want to walk back to the car for more. So we decided to go. I really wanted to stay and watch, but we were tired.
