Nope. He's not going anywhere. ;^) Some optimistic people having all those trailers to bring their vehicles back...wonder how they'll get them loaded?! I love the dirt flying in the air and the blue smoke adds to the drama. The background is a bummer (distracting). Hope this does ok for you.

A better composition would help this one, maybe zoom out a bit and point the camera a bit to the left

I know the world is not perfectly flat and sometimes things appear not as they truely are...but I think rotating to the right ever so slightly could improve the photo (fence posts not vertical). Otherwise...it certainly shows action alright...nice find!
