Default Tractor Pulling...... 2 shots. (one added, so now 3 shots)


This one was rather impressive it uses engines from a helicopter for boost .


One of the stock racers.


This one had for me the best sound, 3 engines V8 bigblocks with blowers. Just like a whole lot of Muscle cars. The fun thing was that the motors stalled and had to be started one by one (there are no start motors), hearing one comming up was incredible when the second one came also it was amazing and with the third.... goosebumps..... and I don't like this sport :-).

Hope you like them.

I can readily assume that these babies are not readily avaialble at my local Caterpillar or John Deere outlet.

I think you captured the essence of what this is all about, heat, noise, pure energy, and a lot of excitement and waiting around. Note the kid in blue shirt perched in the upper right wondering, will he or wont he?

Keep clicking away.

All shots are well done, the people who make up the back ground add so much to them. Nothing beats high performence motors making the ground shake!

Wonderful series, Frank!

You have captured it all...

crowds, roar of the engines, brilliant colors

The hint of kinetic energy with the "smoke"
enveloping the rear tires is a great touch!

Kudos
