All the captures are nice.

Seems just a tad off in being sharp.

Did you pan these shots? It looks like you waited until it came into your field of view before taking the shot and some blur in the cones are apparent but does not look like it was a pan shot.

yes on most of these I waited until they are in the corners and I follow them slightly so I get a little blur on the cones. There was definitely lack of speed in the cars and it made it hard for me to pan and this is why I opt to take the pictures when they enter a certain corner.

I agree though, sharpness can be improved! Thanks vIZnquest

Here are some of mine.

They were taken from the NOPI show 2 weekends ago in Atlanta, at the speedway.

I would try a different angle. All of the shots lack any feel of real motion. From the position of the front tires it looks like they are moving more towards you, except of the last one.

pan and slow the shutter speed down a few ticks....I think that'll add the blurring effect in the background to suggest motion...
