Pics: TWS (Texas World Speedway) Easter 04.04.10

So I rode out with a few others to watch the bikes go 'round and 'round and took my camera to get some snaps from turn 10. I took about 500 pics and got tired of cleaning them up so here are 93 of them. Some level 1,2 4.
If I know you I probably got some pics of you out there.
Chris, Lisa, Mel, Kara, Armando, AJ, Brandt, Jose, Matt (Duci22), Helena (do you drive a black Ninja?), Andrea, Matt (Cali).

You can PM me with your bike number and I can see if I have pics of you and I will upload them so that you can download them to your computer.

*** Not professional quality pics. Total amateur just messing around with my Nikon D300 with an 18-200mm lens. Still learning how to use it. Then I try to clean it up in Adobe Light Room.

Photobucket sucks with previews on this site now. Works just fine on "the other site".

Just use the link below to view the album:

haha.. I would shoot either.... I just started with nikon so now I have nikon lenses...I've never been to one of the track days... would might want to check one out as a spectator before riding it. Can you get to any part of the course / track and take pics or is it restricted in some way?

Pretty restricted. Most people go to the horseshoe to get their pics at TWS (Texas World Speedway),

turn 10 is about the closest you can get without corner working for the most part.
They tend to not like people out on the other corners.

Thanks! I tried to get as many shots as I could using the "Texas World Speedway" in the background and put the flowers in the foreground to frame the riders. This is the only time of year we will see the flowers there so it was great timing.
