Clean Up In Isle Four

From the September 1 racing night I attended with my family, I was following our company sponsored car, the number 31 car. I was just about take a photo while it was coming out of turn number four at Elko Speedway, when all of a sudden, the tires squealed, a car spun out, a minor fender bender occurred shortly after this shot. It really was a lucky shot. I was planning on a different photo, but ended up capturing this in action pre-accident. The red and orange cars directly behind it would eventually crash into the car that is not headed in the proper direction in the photo.

My 3 Daily Photo Favorites:
Naples, Florida
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Detroit, Michigan

Thank goodness for the "minor fender bender"!
My little nephew is a big racing fan, so one time I took him to Daytona. Never again - the noise, the smell, the constant threat of impending disaster...Not my cup of tea ;-)
Did you enjoy it?

I did actually enjoy the races. I'd never gone to them before the month of September [I've gone twice now]. Inexpensive, small race track, short races [20-40 laps be division]. I'm not normally a race car fan, but I did know two separate cars in the race, so I had someone to root for. Perhaps that made the difference for me.

Oh-oh. Hope everyone was OK--cool capture!

Funny title, if they don't make that announcement during spin outs like this, they should. Bet, it would get some laughs from the spectators.
