Back to my drag racing photos. Once again these are from my session at Thunder Valley Raceway in Noble, Oklahoma and feature a Chevy Nova with big tires and a hot rod engine. The car is doing a burnout in the “water box” to warm up the tires for the upcoming run. This photo proves that racers will hop up ANYTHING to make it go fast – notice the pickup truck in the background. Once again this was shot on my Toyo VX-125 4×5 film camera.
