Too funny, ferny! If it's who I think it is, then I wonder if the dragster can barrel race also... :-)

I still can't see who it is... and I don't know what barrel racing is... something to do with hor*****ing? So, Amy? Jenni?

Is that me?

Maybe I see glasses.. but I really can't tell it's too small!

I am awake so late because I just felt sick.... and what are the chances... right ater I typed that I felt sick part.. I ran into the bathroom and... well I need not use vivid words, but you get the point.

I left this post open long so it might not be up to date.

I leave my picture alone for the weekend and this is what happens.

I have to admit I do like the motion blur, but I don't think it fit here. This is the very start of the race, and while the front end is way up in the air, the car has only just started to move and is not going very fast.

Your pictures do have me thinking though. I need to go home and play with a radial blur. Maybe I can use Amy's excuse?

To anyone that is not familiar with drag racing, yes this really is a race. This type of racing is the most popular (most participants) and is called bracket racing. You select a time that you think your car will run. That's called your dial-in. When two cars compete, they subtract the dial-ins, and the slower car gets that much of a head start. The theory is that if both drivers get identical reaction times, and both run what they predicted, they will meet right at the finish line... a tie. In practice, this never happens. Reaction times will differ, and the car may run quicker or slower than predicted. There is a penality for going quicker than your dial-in. If you run to quick you are automatically disqualified. If both cars run under their dial-in then the person closest to their dial-in wins.
