Thanks to my 2 buddies, Andy & George, for their help in setting this up. Spent 2 nights practicing & trying different things. Still didn't get exactly what I had originally imagined, but have run out of time.

Started by leaving shutter open and with Andy in position I moved to his front right and fired the flash twice. Then Andy moved back and George drove the vehicle into position and stopped. Then Andy & I fired flashes several times, then George drove through the frame so that the lights would give a motion effect. Then I closed shutter.

Minor PP in CS2. Took off auto in camera raw and gave slight level adjustment.

The red artifacts in bottom right are, I think, the LEDs on the flash gun...oops!

Is the same person driving as the one being hit? Their shirts look a lot alike.
