A few from my weekend outing.

Didn't have the best vantage point but got a few good ones anyway.

Are the NASCAR shots at Daytona?

Like the first one of the "pack" starting into the banked curve, conveys action very well.

Nice shots Eddy! The crash one is certainly dramatic, and like Matthew said that first one of the race is just great! I personally think the full crowd is what makes that shot. For the individual car shots did you pan? Or did you just pick out a spot, prefocus and hit the shutter when the car got there? In either case you "nailed" them

While I prefer cars that turn left AND right, I really enjoyed these. The capture of the car hitting the wall is excellent.

Great photos. Racing, as you can probably tell, is my passion. (outside of photography)

Post more if you have them.
