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.

Beech Ridge Motor Speedway, Scarborough, ME

Went to check out the local NASCAR track in Scarborough, ME.  I was a fun Saturday night.  Definitely will attend more of the races next season as there was only 3 weeks of racing left for the summer.  They had 4 divisions racing with qualifing races first, then the main events for each division.  Here are some shots from the weekend.
