Manzanita Speedway Car Show

In the middle of October we did a little car show at Manzanita Speedway which is a local 1/2 mile dirt track here in Phoenix. We hoped to sell tickets to our Club's Raffle Ranchero.

And you know I have to have my sunset fix... .

I wonder if the people sitting in the bleachers even realise what a spectacular sunset they are missing !!??

Two pictures sandwiched their exposures were...

This is three pictures tall taken from the grandstands...the tree is very tall.

Hot laps

In order to get the moisture worked into the track so the cars can get some grip they drive round & round untill it gets the right consistency.

This is from the general admission grandstands..good ole UZI and 10x stabilized zoom.
