Chad's Raceday

I went to the Carolina Dragway today to watch Chad race his Triumph Rocket. It was a fun day for all. Here are some of the highlights. Will add some of the cars in a little while

Cars

Here are some of the cars that ran. I didn't bring extra batteries so I didn't catch as many as I would have liked to. Click on the long pic for a larger version, or click on the link below it for an 800x600 zoom on the cars themselves.

short movie: this was the most exciting of the car launches that I captured - there were a lot more like this or better! (approx 4MB)

and finally, here is our own drag bike. It's a highly modified pink Honda Rebel 250, with a slick and wheelie bars.

OK, its a photochop, but it was kinda fun.
