    I am a big drag racing fan, and love to take pics at our local tracks. I went to Bristol, TN, this past weekend and took my 300D along with me. Let me know what you think. FWIW I was sitting almost halfway down the track, and I was on the top row.

    Canon 300D
    Sigma 70-300mm F4-5.6 II

    There are some highlights below.......but you can CLICK HERE to see all of the pictures.......

    Ahhh......breathe in the the eye watering, lung callapsing nitro fumes....

    330 is probably twice as fast as anything I've ever panned. :wiggle:

    Nice pics! I am a big drag racing fan also and it is definetly not easy to take pictures of something going 330 mph.

    nice pics.. going to be hard to take technically flawless photos in that situation but the tyre distortions are really quite impressive :)

    the one nicely framed blue dragster after a blowup is a good shot. i guess he was just touring past though ;)

    Actually that dragster still made a 250mph pass. It was dropping cylinders at about the 1/8th mile mark (halfway), so it never reached full speed. It was going about 175-200mph when I took those 2 pics of it.
