AMA Lucas Oil Races

Recommended Posts

Me, my Brother in Law and few friends went up to watch the races yesterday. They estimated 35,000 plus in attendance. The track is huge. These guys were flying everywhere. Weather was perfect (mid 80's) and we had VIP passes to get into the tents for free food and drinks all day. I am not up on who's who in motorcycle racing but we met a couple riders and shook their hands, saw Brian Deegan hanging out with his little boy.

All in all it was a fun day. My wife gave me my X-Mas present early since I was heading up there. She got me a new lense for my camera. It is a 70-200 F2.8 IS USM II. This thing is sweet! Silent autofocus and very fast as well. The only drawback is that it weighs a ton and after carring it for 4 hours my arm felt it. I can't wait to take it out to the dunes and get some action shots out there.

Here are the shots---

Great shots Tim! I knew you'd love that lens. It has such a nice feel huh?

I sometimes use my monopod with that lens if I'm at an event for a while. It does get heavy but that's the only drawback.

Thanks-- Those girls were awsome. The slowest girl out there would kick my butt all over the track! The #2 plated girl (Think I have a shot of her) is a deaf girl. Try to imagin doing this and not being able to hear your bike!

Yep, Found her-
