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