    I'm trying to better organize my web site and have it branch off into four categories. One, being ISU stuff of course. Anyway, to get started I added a new batch of 30 photos from the Iowa Speedway last year if anyone is interested in that kind of racing.

    My next thing is the track meet on Friday at the rec center. That'll be a challenge because I've never shot indoor track and it's pretty dark in there, but I hope to get some usable stuff.

    That's a neat pic of Danica coming down pit road.

    You will have to bring your camera when you come to the races with Vanilla Thrilla and I this summer.

    I have had a decent number of photos published over the years, mostly Indycars, but never have made much money from it. I really just love to shoot photos and if I can get them in print that's just icing on the cake to me.
    I was just looking at one of my favorites, though, since the wrestling meet is coming up. It was 1987 and I got some photos in Newsweek Magazine. They were running a story on Dan Gable and they wanted shots of him and of the meet. One of the photos is a double page spread. The editor there couldn't believe you could get 14,000 people in for a wrestling meet!!

    PM me anytime though, I might have some tips for you!!

    I'm looking forward to going with you guys, Curt!! I have one question. If it's the last lap and you two are battling for the lead, are you spinning him out?? :smile:

    OOPS!!!! Thanks CyJ, I will fix that as soon as I get home. And I try to proofread all my captions too. That's embarrassing, so I'm glad you pointed that out.
