Above, heat waves add a nice little reflection below the pro stock cars of Jeg Coughlin Jr, right, and Ron Krisher during the final qualifying session.
This shot is an attempt to shoot something “artsy” with fans reflecting in the wheel of a car hauler parked in the pits as they watch cars race down the track.

Shooting at the very end of the track in Denver gives you an interesting view of the cars coming up the hill in the shutdown area. In this shot of funny car driver Jack Beckman, you can actually see beneath his car as it comes up over the hill.

We would close out Saturday with a pair of fire breathing jet cars. Before they run they put on a smoke show for the Denver fans sending smoke high up into the mountains behind the starting line.
