I went out to the Sunflower
Rod and Custom Association drag strip today and, along with some other
chapter members, volunteered my time to help out with test and tune
that ran from 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm. I worked the water box today right at
the line and that job keeps you on your toes. I saw a lot of burnouts I wanted
to photograph, but let them pass so I could pay attention to what I was doing.
I did have the opportunity to do movie clips of burnouts and runs of
a couple of dragsters, though, and, while the video quality leaves a bit to
be desired, the sound is pretty good for those who like this sort of thing.
Turn your speakers up and enjoy.
I did video clips of one burnout and one pass for this one,
and I did one burnout
and one pass for
this top alcohol dragster in the afternoon, and when he made the final run of the day
when the light was starting to fade.
