Race three of the 2014 NHRA tour took us to the swamps of Gainesville, Florida for the prestigious Gatornationals. Warm temperatures and sunny skies were sure to make for a great weekend of racing. Continue on to see my favorite images from the weekend.

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.

Following the delay of last weekends race here in Atlanta we would return to Commerce for week two of the Southern Nationals. Only one day of qualifying for the pro drivers with the threat of rain made for some stressed out race teams as we head towards the midpoint of the regular season.

Under sunny and humid weather conditions we kicked off the NHRA Spring Nationals near Houston, TX. It would be a day of some good pics. Continue on to see my day…

Kneeling on the ground a few feet behind the car of NHRA funny car driver Ron Capps gave me this cool view as he launches off the starting line.

Time for my first 2013 NHRA blog posting of the year. As with last year my drag racing season would begin in West Palm Beach, FL for pre season testing, Toyota Racing NHRA portraits and new on the schedule this year… some fishing!

After a long day spent on the starting line for Friday, I decided I wanted to shoot top end for day two of qualifying. Last year I would shoot top end this same day and was rewarded with a Pretty Wild Photo Sequence. Would today provide me any cool photos? As a former vice president candidate used to say, “You Betcha!”
