I will try like hell to be there.. Hey Doug, how are the tech people at Milan these days ??? If I tell them 12s will they buy it ??? I dont mind getting booted for going WAY too fast, I just dont want to get denied at tech because it "looks fast"
1970 1/2 RS Z28 S.B., Pump Gas, Radials, Full Tails ( 3 1/2" ) 10.59 @ 129 (single digits are soon to come !)
Well I really hope you don't oil down the track when it blows. That will cut into everyone else' time during the cleanup LOL.
If this works out like when we rent Martin for the Berger Show you will be able to get about as many runs in as you want. I have seen many guys do 20+ runs in the tme we have there. I think 12 is the most I have done.
I have been contracted by the show to do photography all weekend. I do the same for the Berger Show. At the track on Fri I will be shooting freehand. Burnouts, at the lights ect. Fri night I will print proofs of all those shots and have them available for viewing on Sat/Sun. I will also be available all weekend to do group or individual car shots at the show. If you see something you like enlargements will be available for purchase. Everything sold will be printed in a professional lab (not like a Walmart) and mailed to you 2-3 weeks after the show. I have permission from Superfest and Milan Dragway to use their logo's. LET'S SEE SOME GREAT BURNOUTS!!!
Here is the format I will be using.
THANKS! I love doing it!
The ones from the drag strip I will print off 4 to a page in proofs fri night for you to look at on Sat/Sun. I shoot these completely unstaged. Some cars get 10 shots some get 1. Just depends on where I am and what I happen to be shooting. I try very hard to get pics of everyones car at least once but most will have 2-3 to choose from. I'm not sure how it is going to work if I am shooting drag strip and autocross at the same time. But, burnouts or wheels up at launch are by far the coolest shots so I think you will see me at the strip the most.
Staged shots at the show you can see on the camera.
The lab I use does such a great job. They love to see me come in because they get really tired of doing wedding photos day after day LOL. I will have several examples of past shots on display so you can see the quality you are getting.
