p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · First dirt track racing of the season.


1. Took advantage of a preseason practice session to get a little practice of my own.






2. It has been unusually rainy this winter. The track was good but everything else was a quagmire.






3. Oddly, the cars are my least favorite part of shooting racing.






4.






5.






6. Hey, a man's gotta eat.






7.






8.






9. I wonder if Danica started out this way?






10. As always, thanks for lookin' !






Marty

I like 1 and 3.

It would be neat to see the same location of 3, but up high with a wide angle or fish eye remote. Might make for a neat image. Is that from the end of the wall in image 9?

Looks like you were shooting in the late afternoon - so I'm assuming you had sunlight. I like the ones such as 5 where you can freeze the back tire and show the ripples. If you ever make it up to St. Louis let me know we have 3 tracks and race Friday and Saturday nights.

I can almost smell the alcohol burning after the first run out of turn 4 - God bless America!

Good stuff, Marty, cars and all. Love the smiles in 9 AND 10 #6 definitely is a keeper, and knowing nothing about this kind of racing, 7 is my favorite of the car photos.

basehorhonda, thanks. That is an opening in the wall for cars to get in and out of the pits.

Thanks for looking and commenting jspytek. It was a cloudy afternoon. The tires do go through some serious contortions. I don't know what keeps them on the rim sometimes. I was up in St. Louis a couple summers ago. I like to fish the White River in Northern Arkansas and swing through Missouri on my way back east.

You're right Jefferson, the dust cloud is just around the corner. Give me a holler sometime if you ever want to get your Canon dirty.

Thanks Russ. The car in #7 is called a Dwarf car. They are powered by motorcycle engines and are kind of a novelty class at the track. But more importantly, this particular group buys a ton of photos.

Shane, there is definitely too much exposure in #10. I didn't want to spend much time taking a reading though.

Thanks for stopping by guys,
Marty

Hey Marty, Nice Set. #1 might be my favorite dirt track image I have seen, it has a great feel to it, from the texture in the track to the unmarked death machine just off the lead cars rear end...nice set...wish I had not scrolled to #10 though...

It has been unusually wet this winter...we don't seem to dry out much before the next rain hits...

Great set, Marty. Well, maybe not so much the last one. I like the head on shots as that's just not a typical view that we normally get to see.

It looks like the infield was way, way soft and muddy judging by the background in #9...

Looking foward to your next set.

Thanks Travis. That means a lot coming from you. I am a big fan of your race photography. Unmarked death machine...I like that. Sorry about #10. You just can't unsee some things.

Hey Scott. Just trying to keep things balanced. Open with a head shot, close with a tail shot!

Those are kind words Marty, thanks. One day I will find a way to get out and shoot some dirt tracking.

#6 is pretty cool. Looks like he was really enjoying the mud!
