Shot some drag racing last Saturday night at an 1/8 mile dragstrip. I struggled to get any clean/sharp shots with little to no lighting. Shot ISO 3200 on a 50D and 70-200 f/2.8. Manual exposure of roughly 1/80 and f/3.5, white balance on flourescent. This kept the lighting/exposure/color consistent, just had to concentrate on panning with the cars. Thought I would share this .MOV stitched together as I shot a good bit on high speed.

Its amazing what we can get away with in ISO these days. Its great feeling when you nail one of those panning shots at a low shutter speed though. Good work.

I usually use a flash when I do my drag racing night photos. Set the flash to second curtain sync. Well my flash stays on second curtain sync all the time anyway.
