    Not a car picture as such but it is at least part of a car- bought this piece of Kyle Larson's NASCAR at American Speedfest at Brands Hatch in 2016

    To be honest I never really understood the appeal of Drag Racing until I saw this video.
    I suspected that would probably be the case. I never really saw the appeal of it either. But a friend of mine is a huge fan and follows it closely. He goes to Mile High every year and this year asked me if I wanted to go. I wasn't doing anything so I said sure. Turns out I had a really good time.

    Cool things about drag racing:
    1. The noise is ridiculous. It's not even the noise so much as the fact that your entire world is vibrating so much that your eyes can't focus on anything. No idea what it must be like in the cockpit.
    2. Pit access for fans is wide open. Anybody can walk up to where they're working on the cars and just stand there and watch (as long as you stay behind the ropes).
    3. How many times in your life are you going to be able to witness a car going over 300 mph?
    4. Tuning a TF car is part science, part art and part guesswork. I never understood how much went into it. Everybody was struggling with the altitude and getting the engine to run well, even with huge-ass blowers on top. Early on, it was the rare car that made it all the way down the track without at least dropping a cylinder.
    5. The Pro Stock category was impressive. 500 cu.in. NA engines doing sub-7 seconds at over a mile of elevation.
    6. The motorcycles were one of my favorite parts.
    7. Leah Pritchett
    8. Fans can often get discarded car parts like blower belts and tires just for asking. There was a kid about 10-12 years old going around with a rear tire. He was just rolling it from pit to pit and getting people to autograph it.

    Lame things:
    1. It's a little bit hard to figure out what's going on sometimes. I suppose this becomes more clear as you learn more about it.
    2. Many of the classes were races to a certain time. If you go under that time, you're DQ'ed. So the cars' computers are programmed to try to hit that time and not much is up to the driver. [This is in very stark contrast to the top classes where how you drive is as important as what you drive.]

    It's like that at alot of short tracks in the UK but there is unlimited access usually, which is kind of alarming as the drivers do often do some flat out testing in the pits so there is a constant fear of being run over. But you can literally walk up to and touch the cars or look inside or whatever. Sometimes they literally strap cars down to the trailers and use cranes to stretch them back into shape.

    Other times you can literally walk out on to the track whilst the clean up is going on after the last race which is really cool.

    Some of the drivers are great too, they often just merge their way into the crowd, sometimes high fiving people if they have a big wreck

    These are great pictures, everything looks in focus and I can barely manage that half the time
    What sort of Camera are you using? I'm just stuck with the camera on my Galaxy S6
