First of all, their is way to many distracting objects in the photograph, crop out the bottom and top of the image, to make it sort of like a letter box crop, and then you wouldnt have all the distracting crowd in the way, and that means you can just focus on what it ment to be focused on, and you would need to clone that big long pole of of the shot, but ver carefully or else you could mess up the whole photograph. But when shooting this sort of shot, use a slightly faster shutter speed, just so you can see the drama and damage on the other cars, so the viewer's will know what this race is about, and you can still have superb movement. aswell by doing that..

Hope this help.

I would agree with most of what Scott has said, but I'm not so sure about his comments on the cropping, if you crop the foreground AND the background your going to end up with a very small image by the time your finished and you'll lose soem of the sense of speed. I would be inclined to crop the bottom third of the image and leave the crowd in the background, that will keep the sense of speed in the shot.
There is always plenty of action at a DD, or at least there is here in the UK, the "shot of the day" is more likely to be a car being t-boned or lifted off the ground with a big hit. While this shot captures the speed well, I think the big hits make for a more spectacular shot. I'd try lower down and faster shutter speed and try and get the "big hit" of the day if it was me.
