Boone Speedway-IMCA Super Nationals
9/4-9/9/06
Just for fun, here are some highlights from the event - I'll be posting more after tonight,
so please check back on Friday. One note. There's a lot of contrasting light shining on
the fence and every once and a while my camera wigs out for a moment while it
adjusts to the light changes...so these clips aren't perfect by any means.
If you click on the video links below, please be patient; to do this on the web at a
decent resolution, the file sizes are large. Unless you have at least DSL, don't try to
open them, as you will be waiting for quite a while for it to open. They are QuickTime
media files, and if you need a free copy of the software, just download it at
www.quicktime.com (it's free).
