    Default Secret Street September 18th

    First time ever down at the track. Didn't get a whole lot of good ones, got dark too early and even though I had a few 2.8 lenses in the bag I didn't feel like putting too much effort into it haha. Definitely a good turnout! Probably will come down again next week too.

    Hearse was badass, didn't get a picture though.

    Don't need 2.8 Lenses to get dusk shots. I took this with my 20D iso 3200 with 18-55 non-is kit lens at f4.5 at 1/160th hand held.


    Don't know if it was you out there with a canon and a 70-200 or somebody else, but the way I was talked to was utterly pathetic. What kind of photographer comes up to somebody else shooting and tells them they have shitty equipment?

    "You're camera is old and junky, you should get rid of that piece of shit maybe you could take better photos if you upgraded".

    Kids lucky I didn't hit him with my old junky camera square in his nose.

    Nah, definitely wasn't me. That's too bad that you're getting put down like that though.

    And like I said, no I didn't need a 2.8 lens but I didn't feel like putting a ton of work into shooting last night. Just kinda there to take in the atmosphere in case Race City closes.

    Were you the dude in the red hat who seemed to able to go whoever?

    I might get some more up soon.

    Here are a couple more. These are pretty much all the semi-interesting ones I have. If anyone could tell me what the two muscle cars are, that would be a big help.

    This one I'm posting as a tribute to all you spectators who went and watched Secret Street week after week.

    The first one is a 71 Camaro owned by Marty, big block chevy powered, has run a best of [email protected] Not a street car so he wasn't in the shootout.

    The 2nd one is a 69 Camaro owned by Mario, 502 cubic inch big block, spraying 150hp of N20, I think it's best time is [email protected] It was part of the shootout & is street driven regularly.

    15.1 when I raced him and yes he's k-swapped. He said it was his first time ever at the track though.
