Actually, this set is from the January race. They have a three-race championship. First race is the end of October, second is the end of January and the last race runs the first week in March.

I love the change of pace here. First of, every lap is extreme. Second, there's not a laptop anywhere in sight. These buggies are all engineered by seat of the pants and built out back in the shop. It's refreshing... and the folks are salt of the earth.

John,

Stop posting. You're making me realize how badly I need a life.

This looks like crazy fun! You've captured the insanity perfectly.

Now I know why Jefferson calls you the King.

Every shot is a money shot. I am continually amazed at what humans will invent and then make into a competition.

John, great shots, I live in the community right behind the track and always love going. These racers have really evolved over the years, it's a shame I don't have any of my old shots so people could see what the original race buggies looked like. You needed to include a shot of the Swamp Buggy Queen. At the end of the race the grand winner of all the clases takes the swamp buggy queen in her gown and jumps into the swamp, dunking them both in the mud.

NICE! Everytime i see these on TV I think it would be a blast to shoot! I would imagine a long lens is needed to stay dry!

Thanks for the kind words. These are a blast to shoot and there's great atmosphere and background shooting too. Some colorful characters involved... and with regards to technology... not a laptop in sight! Quite a contrast to shooting the Audi pits at Sebring.
