Default Short Track Auto Racing

Was out at the local NASCAR endorsed short track in Holland, NY yesterday. Took my oldest because it was Girl Scout Night and she's a brownie. Took as much as I could until the light faded and I couldn't really shoot anymore. Considering, they didn't turn out too bad, still honing my panning skills. Was fun to watch these classes of cars racing though. All of these are shot with my K20D and DA 55-300mm lens at either 1/100 or 1/125 shutter speed.

#2 is my favourite - I really get the feel for the action from it. Great shot!

These look good to me! I've never tried shooting at the races, only attempted panning shots on the street. Some day I'd like to try it, looks like a fun challenge.
