800 horsepower trucks on a 1 mile closed course off road track, the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series raced under the lights this weekend.

Led by Rodrigo Ampudia's Papa's n Beer Ford, 7 pro racers in the air over 3 tabletop jumps on the front straightaway. It looked like a ballet of trucks jumping at the same time off different jumps.

Whoa...right on! I wonder if I could get Clark to do that. Probably so...once. Awesome photo!

No way - they're ALL airborne?

Hehe, hover cars. =P And one of them is on fire...lol.

I like this. Perhaps with a little more contrast, this could be a really killer image? If you darkened the black in the background (even just by burning it), and intensified the cars, it would help "pop" the subjects forward.

*6* for great composition, eye, and subject, but needs more depth of field. =)

09/04/2011 10:10:56 PM
Wow! All of them captured in mid air! Cool!

Fun action shot. Well done!

Really nice catch, especially under those lighting conditions.

A scene to say wow to. Nicely done for a very difficult subject.

Almost looks like a hoover craft race they way that nearly all of them are level in the air. Great capture.

Magic shot. Well framed and captured!

They're all airborne at the same time and at roughly the same height :) Very good action shot! Very hard lighting conditions, and you did a very good job capturing the stopped motion. The noise in the dark sky is the only clue of a high ISO (as is some tiny loss of detail due to noise reduction).
