|A couple of weeks ago Jill and I were trying to decide what to do with our Saturday.|
As I was going through my Emails I noticed that I had received a message about motorcycle racing out at the Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele.
My day was instantly planned. The thrill of motorcycles screaming around the track, me wishing I had one of my own, and figuring out how to take decent pictures sounded like a great Saturday indeed.
Jill was not as easily convinced. But with the notion of a picnic, a good book in hand, the IPod, and the cheap admission price, she was up for an adventure.
Admission was only 5 bucks since this was a pretty small event. We had access to pretty much the entire facility. Unfortunately we arrived at the beginning of the lunch time break.
We wandered around until I finally found a schedule and determined that today was mostly practices and tomorrow were the actually races.
Oh well, it was still fun... and I think Jill actually enjoyed it a little bit too.
Thanks Jill for indulging me with a few hours of watching high powered machines circle the track and shooting a whole lot of bad pictures.
Hopefully I have learned a few things about shooting fast moving objects from a long distance in the bright afternoon sun.
Someday I will figure out how to take decent pictures.
The Kart racing pictures turned out a lot better than the motorcycles.
Jill's indulgence of the day was purchasing a new Modbe swimming suit.
Here are the rest of the Motorcycle Pictures and the Kart Pictures.
