NHRA:Mello Yello Drag Racing Series: Auto Plus New England Nationals

Since I got interested in photography, my dream has been to shoot at least one game of all the major sports including NASCAR and NHRA. Friday, June 21, 2013 one item was crossed off my “bucket list”. I wrote to NHRA using a letter from the site I am associated with, SportsPageMagazine.com. I was approved to shoot trackside on Friday of the event.

Pro Stock Motorcycle started off qualifying for the pros.

Next up was Pro Stock, these guys run 210mph in 6 seconds in the quarter mile.

Following Pro Stock was Funny Car. These cars are amazing. When the first pair ran, I was extremely startled, and the only way I can describe it, is the shock wave these cars and dragsters produce. My sunglasses shook every time a pair left the starting line.

Top Fuel dragsters came up next. These machines are pretty much missiles with wheels. 330 mph in under 4 seconds to 1000 ft.

To see the complete gallery of photos please visit SportsPageMagazine.com, then click on Other Sports then Motorsports. There are 2 galleries there, one for round one of qualifying, and one for round 2.
