One of my favourite drag racing photos. Mathew Abel's Top Doorslammer (similar to the Pro Modified class as defined by the NHRA).
Best time 5.981 (1/4mile / 402metres). I like all the cracks and damage to the body, most probably as a result of tyre shake.

Those were with the 150-600, right Dave? Where were you at when you took those? I'm pretty set on that lens being the next lens I purchase.

I don't recall it being Central Florida Dragway, but from your description, it's the same place. I remember the Bo Laws cars too. Do you remember Lil Bull, and his black '68 Camaro? Here's what the car has looked like for the past several years.
