1. The obligatory pan shot.

5. Sometimes it's hard for even a race car driver to look cool.






6. But that's OK because not everyone there cares.

Bill Elliot makes a Cameo! Nice set! Racing will start soon here, and I vow I'll hit the track this year at least once! Of course I've said that the past 3 years since I quit shooting with the track photographer!

Water is what is coming out of it. Many drivers will put an overflow spout there so they can get a visual when the engine is overheating and pushing water out.

I love how ugly these cars are. And flow to rival a race horse! Great back-room feel to #10. But the kids really steal the show. Thanks for the entertainment, Marty! You've got a great eye. Really liking 1 and 3 of the car shots.

Yeah Matt, that's Awesome Bill from Dawsonville. The track is literally in the middle of the woods in the middle of nowhere. I think he raced there in his younger days. His son Chase was running there Friday night. If you decide to shoot some dirt racing you should check this out. http://www.lucasoilspeedway.com/

amlsml, thanks. Matt is right. That's a safety valve to discharge the boiling water when an engine over heats. It works better when the car has a windshield. These don't so the driver was getting hosed down pretty good before he pulled over and stopped. I imagine they will reroute it before the next race.

Thanks Russ. As the season goes on the cars get even uglier. Lots of fender benders on race day and rubber hammer and duct tape body work during the work week.

Thanks for taking the time to look and comment!

Greay shots Marty

#4 looks like it's been rolled at least twice....#5 is a classic... looks like it should be a decal in someones back window

The track looks in better condition this time...Might start a thread about "Do iphones and tablets in general, interfere with drivers at night races"

Thanks Jefferson. I think we were commenting on each other's posts at the same time.

Great set, Marty. #2 jumped out at me as a really cool shot with the extreme side lighting and light on the drivers face. #9 is a great metaphor - the storm is coming.
