Here is how my shoot started out on my 1st night at the Turkey Derby:

The low lighting didn't give me the best quality, but I'll keep'em !

I have never been to Wall Stadium, I am more of a dirt track Modified, Sprint car guy (Bridgeport, NJ). I should get there sometime. The pictures are great.

The new addition was they invited and ran the DIRT CARS on the asphalt. Not as much sliding but cool to watch none the less...

See the other pics here:

[QUOTE=SHARKEY-IMAGES;3257842]After feeling the wind off these ATV's as they came by, I realized just how up close to the action I really was. It has me considering purchasing a helmet for future events...
This shot was taken on top of the hill in the 2nd pic. If hit, there is no way of stopping from going off the side of this jump.


Tim, WOW!!! You triggered some great memories from Raceway Park. Knew those shots were from the top of the staircase, if that is what they still call it. First time there we showed up an got into the pit lane entrance in the middle of the night. Looking out the motorhome window as it got light out I could see that big jump, but the top was hidden in the fog ! First practice I witness a guy get cross-rutted and he launches side-ways off the top of that staircase wide-open in front of me. After they got him loaded into ambulance practice resumed.
Attended several Kawasaki Race of Champion events there as a Team Green rider, challenging/ dangerous/ fun track for sure.

You posted about shooting sleds this winter. Check out Rock Maple Racing Snocross events. Raced a few years snocross with those guys and it is extreme. The colors, locations, obstacles, and close racing action provide for awesome photos !

Boats are all that my body can now handle, thanks to all this other "fun stuff".

Thanks Kelly !
I couldn't imagine going off the side of the staircase, but I know if I did they would be taking me away in an ambulance as well...

And to you as well Speedy !

I need a bit more time to gain experience with shooting action shots at night. It was a lot of trial and error...

I was fortunate on the one image that a photog in the closer corner to the crash pulled the trigger the same time I did so his flash lit the car up for me.

Going through other images now and just when I thought some of my crash shots were a complete loss, I found a solution to somewhat save them. I got a bit artistically creative...

Yesterday's crashes were insane. Final feature two cars up and over down the front stretched. One of the cars clipped the starting lights at the starting tower and one of the starters was hit by debris, but he seemed to be ok.

I was adjusting a setting at the time but I think got most of it.

Many bad crashes but luckily no one was hurt in any of them.
