I'm thinking about heading out there. Does anyone know what kind of camera/lens combo I would be allowed to bring in? Not sure on their size requirements. Ideally I would take the 1D and 70-200 but not sure if that setup is too large.

Not sure about Texas, but I've never had an issue at the California venues.

ive never really had an issue getting into SX events with a gear bag. They haven't searched it or stopped to question me... this is based off of my experiences at Houston, New Orleans, and Vegas for MEC

imo the 70-200 would be plenty sufficient, pending where your seats are located...

A bit of local motorcross. Next Saturday is their first club race of the season, looking to cover that. So any tips/advice/criticism is appreciated, here to learn from the best :p

Thanks guys. I could have sat at that corner all day.

Here you go Mozes. Not quite as cropped as the first one.

This is the shot that created a lot of the roost, but the bloody bush got into the foreground (well, I didn't avoid it is more accurate!). Was fuming.
