Something I found very strange on the 5dmk3 is that the vibirations from the top fuel drag cars when standing directly between the set off the shutter release on its own... saved me the effort lol

Drag racing is one of my favorite things to photograph. I normally am confined to the stands, and I on occasion get something good, like this:

Once though, a friend of mine who is a drag racing photographer was able to get me an extra media pass that got me on the line. It was awesome being up, but I felt a little inadequate with my Powershot SX120 IS and everyone else had some kind of DSLR and lens combo that cost a few grand. Hopefully I'll be able to get one of these this coming season and get in there with my new Rebel T3i

It was getting dark in this one, and the ISO couldn't be set much higher on the camera, or else it would get too grainy.

Jet trucks have big engines. This guy caught a light pole on fire and burned some fencing. We'd never had a jet do that before.

I'll play. Hit up two races within a few months of each other. First time out shooting races in years. I still have a TON to learn about processing RAW files but I will get there eventually.

Found some older shots. I am hoping to get back to the track many times this year.
