Got an opportunity to photograph the NHRA Sonoma Nationals and can't wait to do so. I haven't gone through all 21 pages yet but just curious how NHRA banning flash's at the starting line has effected everyone? If at all? Just looking to get a baseline of what to expect iso wise.. (lighting depending of course)

Nice that would be my dream to shoot from the start line. I have shot many photo from the stands without problems granted I was farther away from the start line. I have shot some warm up pics in the pits that were much closer without a problem either. I will there on Friday as well shooting from the stands.

Nice, it's been a goal of mine to photograph NHRA. I started going to the NHRA race in 1999 yearly up until 2011. I honestly can't wait to wear the purple media vest, I'll also prolly end up looking like Barney the dinosaur too. LOL

Here's my contribution. A few from the NHRA Texas Sportsman Challenge held a couple of weeks ago at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Tx.

As you can see, I have to shoot from the stands, which were almost empty. That allowed me to walk freely up and down to get different points of view.

Canon 60D w/70/200 f/2.8 lens.

That last one is whacked. Looks like something Big Daddy Roth would come up with.

Those bodies were molded after the movie Christine. There have been some really nice ones done.

Any general tips for shooting drag racing? Going to try and make it out to a few races in Northern California soon...

I'll jump in and play here, 90% of my photography is at the drag strip. Recognize a few names in this forum.

Both of these were shot at Gateway during the SCSN Anarchy at the Arch event.
