My friend Toddy has been racing for 6 years. So I went to my buddy's race on Sunday, had the camera and was taking some pictures, and thought......"Hot damn....I just took some motion shots...." He is 18 years old and is sponsored by Texas Roadhouse Restaurant, kid stomps the competition. He usually comes in 1rst, 2nd, or 3rd. His collection of awards consists of 50 trophys and about 150 plaques. This year he got moved up to 250C next year its Heavyweight, and then the Semi-Pros.

Low indoor light, high ISO, lots of grain - acceptable. This comes off as journalistic/sports photog. Just enough color items in crop to show off the motion blur. Crop is too square, taking away from the 'action' sense Slight narrowing of height will make it seem like he's going twice as fast.

Great capture and tracking under rough conditions. Neat image would help it, but is not necessary for the subject matter.
