Okay, here's a few pics from today...Nicky Hayden's show-off wheelie. It was so awesome. Edwards and a few other guys lined up on turn four to pose for photos in front of the grandstands after qualifying, then started to take off, and right as they let their clutches out Nicky comes flying around turn 4, slams up a wheelie, flies past the other guys, and gives everyone the "peace" sign. Check this shit out, I was going nuts:







I have so many photos I don't even know what to do with them, and I'm so crunched for time because I have to get up way early to make it to the track tomorrow...there's going to be so many people there...and I'm with a girlie I haven't seen in a few years, so I'm taking her out tonight for dinner and a movie...anyway...I took some more photos today of AMA Superbike qualifying, and tons of MotoGP qualifying, and yesterday I took all kinds of photos of AMA SBK/SS, MotoGP, all over the paddock, and a bunch of pics of a Desmosedici RR (yes, they had one in the flesh, and it is absolutely GORGEOUS...it looked ok in the press shots, but in person I couldn't tear my eyes off it...)...but I just don't have the time! Keep checking back on this thread and I'll post up as I get them ready. Also, others at MGP, post up in this thread too. =)

As for the pics, it's a Nikon D70 digital with a Nikon ED 70-300mm telephoto lense. I'm shooting them at 3000x2000 pixels so I can get more on the memory cards.

The actual race is at 2:00 PM PST. I'm not sure what time they're airing it, but I know they're airing it on Speed channel...I heard that one of the big guys is airing it, like ABC or NBC, but I couldn't verify that.

I have to hit the sack to get up in the moring, but here's a few more quickies of the doctor...not the greatest photography, and I haven't had a chance to drop them into photoshop to clean them up, but hey. I'm trying to post these in full resolution, so we'll see if it works.

what kind of camera/lens did you use to take these? I was on turn 4 too as well as some other places and my 200mm lense wasn't enough. going to try and crop them and see how they turn out. definitely not as sharp as i would have liked though?
