SRD Track Photographer Photos

The track photographer took these when Mike and I were at the track the last time. I'm trying to see if he will put them on a CD for me, I want to use them as wallpapers on my computers.

In the second pic, is that AIR I see under the right front?

Some people can break a cannon ball, in a sand box, with their bare hands.

The car is dead level on launch. I shot video from the drivers side and have been studying it frame by frame, the front right and left are equal amounts. It's just the camera angle the photographer is shooting at from on the hill that makes it appear that way.

Thanks, I keep pecking away at it little by little. I'm hoping we can turn some 5.60's or .70's this Saturday.
