March 19, 2005

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.
