Today we have another alcohol rail dragster shot with my Toyo VX-125 4×5 film camera at Thunder Valley Raceway in Noble, Oklahoma. Once again I caught a little of the tire wrinkle as the car launched from the starting line. To catch this I have learned to watch the starting tree, not car. If I watch the car launch I will be too late in the frame. These experience racers have lightning fast reflexes and learn to anticipate the light and launch quickly with sub-second reaction times.
