BeaveRun motorcycle track day

I finally was able to hook up with Ray Bradlau and join him out on the BeaveRun track this past weekend.  Ray has been the official photographer at BeaveRun for the last 5 years.  We just met this past year through the Dr J Freeride trail, and I've been trying to make some time to see what he does up at the track.  Pretty cool gig, and I got to use his 400 2.8 lens for a couple of shots around the track.  My lenses are all short focal lengths, and on a D700...so the I just didn't have the right equipment for anything except turn 1 where the bikes where 15 feet away from me.  Anyway, I had a great time...unfortunately Ray and Sara are moving to South Jersey so Ray can grow his sports photography business.  Good luck!
