Canon 1Dx, 600mm, 1000iso, f6.3, 1/1600th, Manual Funny car driver Matt Hagan would take the top spot in Atlanta with a sensational 4.06 which also is the new track record.

With all the races/sports/scenery stuff I shoot I have been falling further and further behind on blogs. In an effort to catch up I am going to try something new. Instead of giant write ups a month or two after the event I am going to start posting within 24 hours my top 10 shots from each day at the races and Olympics in what I will now refer to as the 10 Spot. For all the events I am behind on I will only be doing 10 total shots from the entire weekend. Starting with NHRA Denver this weekend I will do a 10 Spot from each day of racing. Thoughts and suggestions are appreciated!
