Thanks for all the replies.........car is packed, camera batteries charged, even remembered our race tickets!

I should have a couple of days to "practice" before the race Sunday.

Final question: Any negative to leaving the camera set to AI Servo even for stationary shots - like in the garage area?

No cool "beep" when focus is locked ;)

You actually run the risk of missing focus alot more often if you keep it on Servo for stationary subjects. This is a perfect example of a good way to use your custom settings (i.e. have C1 set for AI-Servo setup).

Back from Indy and wanted to thank everyone for the suggestions.

This one was really great. I've never used the custom (C1, C2, C3) settings and it worked so well; I could go from stationary settings to AI Servo with everything pre-set. Cool. Thanks.

No, I didn't. I'm a slow learner (with fat fingers) so I want to practice with BBF in a more relaxed (and stationary) setting.

But I will.
