I spent the weekend at the American Le Mans Series race at the new track in Utah. (Makes it easy...I live 25 miles away.)

I took a lotta pics and put them on my server...although I found that it's been way too many years since I did any sports car racing photography and my Sony digital camera wasn't the right tool for the job. I guess I'll have to dig out the old Pentax film camera and see if it still works for the Daytona Prototype race in August.

The entry page is here:

I broke things up into the 3 days:
Practice: http://www.chevyasyl...713/060713.html

Qualifying: http://www.chevyasyl...714/060714.html

And race day:
http://www.chevyasyl...715/060715.html

So if you're thinking about building one of the new Audi R10s or Porsche RSR Spyders, you can get some idea of their appearance.

Also on the entry page are links to the car shows and cruise nites I've hit so far this year.

Ray, I absolutely love the third pic of "setting sun" AWESOME! Setting sun, lights of a ALMS car hitting the corner. Perfect man, just perfect!

Thanks, Chris. I think I got lucky on that shot, considering the difficulty I had with some of the other shots. But I DID get the old Pentax out of mothballs and I'll try a round of pics at the cruise-in tonite. (Assuming I can remember to get film. Film....what's that?)
