Flamin' Ford

By blackett  
Ford Mustang rips up the Santa Pod Drag Strip during the 'Main Event' back in May. The car got really out of shape just after this, and even lifted a rear wheel as he had to back off. You might think that he would have aborted the run. No way, he was straight back on the gas, flying through the 1/4 mile finish line in just 8.5 seconds at 145 mph! On a cold track in the dark at 2130 hrs that takes some guts!

The shot benefits from a floodlight from the rear and a fill in flash from another photographer. 1/40 th sec at F6.4 was all I could get. I hope you like itSmile

BEST person, full volume with 'Smell-o-vision' if you can. (-;

Excellent shot!
Unless you've tried to get these shots at the pod then you'll never know just how hard they are to get.

It's hard enough panning to catch a rally car let alone a dragster accelerating at that rate!!
