I'm going to quote all the important things in this photoshoot.

And just gonna mention the whole "insulator wrapped in gold foil" thing I mentioned in the best diy heatshield thread. cuz if race cars do it, YOU should do it.

nice photos Scott.
On page one, the DP #'s 47 and 77, are those on the new O'Reily Chasis? Were they quicker than the older chasis cars? Just curions, i haven't had time for a life lately and have no idea what's going on with the series.

yes i can. tonight. I was pissed, nearly all the cars that passed by were only on two wheels, not many went sideways for me to capture. I learned a lot about taking pictures on the track with teh telephoto lens. Out of the over +400 pictures I took, I only like one.

Alright Randy!

Last time I talked with him my Miata was n/a.

He's pretty much my favorite driver, first time I met him I was 1 (don't remember, of course), he used to autox at USF before he was famous.

It was funny, during the last half of the NASCAR session it rained, he rolled up with a few spongers and his wife and was cheering on another car. I didn't realize it at first until I saw his k-pax shirt, then it clicked. Just said hi and he talked about the race with everyone while i snapped pictures. He was for sure the fastest in his class, started pole and never lost the lead.

fwiw, that's lap #1. the Porsche had no brakes and used Patrick Dempsey's car as his brakes....Patrick wasn't driving, so no worries there.
