crappy thing about msrh, is that as a corner worker, there is only one decet spot to take shots from, the carousel, and people are going fast thru there so for most its hard to get good shots, and you arent allowed to get close enough to the action....

That is why I got a super zoom. Also, lots of practice getting people going fast at Indy... Those guys were smokin. I hear ya though. Maybe I will just go down there on my own, and get people on the front straight and turns 1 and 2. I like the double deal of getting a free trackday out of snapping pics and making people happy. Also it's fun working a corner, but not fun pulling people out of the gravel. I know the feeling of being "that guy"

hey that's me. Nice shot man. You take great picks! To bad I wasn't dragging my knee that time. Heck I didn't even look like I was trying that hard since I'm usually lower on the tank and off the side more when trying to go fast. Oh well maybe next time.

oh man I saw you standing there after the crash. I think I was a few corners back when you went down. I was late to get on the track during that session. Glad you were ok. I kept going slow thru 10 and 11 during the yellow flag cause I wasn't sure if there was oil or something that caused the get off and plus I didn't want to be the one asshat that goes sliding up into you during a yellow. Not a good way to meet someone. Also someone else went off in turn 6 during the same session and they thru the red flag for that one. At least all was fine.
