    By the end of the night I finally figured out the correct settings/lens combo to take decent pics. The pics with daylight up until dark were with the kit lens, which sucks for action shots at night time. Plus the lens got really dirty there. I switched to the "nifty fifty" and it worked pretty good.

    Any advise/tips/comments are welcome

    This was the most impressive of the night. You can't even begin to imagine how loud these two big ass turbos are. Didn't get to talk to the guy for long, since he was putting it back together. I would guess anywhere between 150-200 pounds of boost, if not more....

    The driver of this sled was a chick who was actually pretty attractive with the DDF I had. I would guess she was about 20 years old or so.
