I will try to get one for you. I think many would be surprised how little air is actually gotten there. But I will be there to catch what I can.

yea, well....this is joel we are talking about. as close to luke duke as we are going to get. if its not air, then its dirt. sometimes you can get air and dirt in the same shot.

I am very familiar with who Joel is, what he drives and how he drives, I went through IC2 with Joel...point remains the same, there is not as much air there as people think...this was shot last year in August...JoelV-77-TT05-L.jpg Sure there is air there...

 

 

This was shot at the same event...this is what most people feel like they are doing in the car...

Jason-42-DE306-L.jpg, and that was the most air under a tire I saw the whole event...

 

Point is, I will do my very best to get the shot that ANYONE wants...I will put myself in the right spot to give the best chance of getting THE shot.

ah...sorry...I apologize. Believe it or not, I have had drivers get upset that I did not "catch" their air...and were not happy with the shot, when there was no air to catch. I never want anyone to be disappointed and work really dang hard to make sure that does not happen.

i understand. you know. i tend to shoot t3 from the front on top of my truck. i know how hard getting the big air shot is. as a driver, i am trying real hard to avoid big air myself anyway.

I tried that from a 12 foot ladder last year, with limited success, the high angle obscures any air, unless you get further down toward Turn 4, and then even my 400mm isn't long enough to do it justice...the big boys that take that shot are packing a 500 or 600 mm lens and some extenders...

yeah, I tried shooting from there, but did not have much luck.

 

To get to where I shoot from, I cross the track between sessions.

Be sure to be on standby near T10 during the Thunder races. There's sure to be a smoldering pile of fiberglass at some point.

Travis,

 

Please put me on your list.

 

I'll also be there Friday for the IC. Hopefully, I'll be able to get out on track with the the IC candidates.

 

I'm driving Thunder Roadster #68 black

 

Idea for a shot: With Jim's ThunderChicken running...... behind me.
