    NASCAR Sprint Cup Series at Pocono

    Some photos from the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Pocono - Friday practice / qualifying, and Sunday's race:

    That will leave a mark!



    "Dusty" from the movie Planes was flown into the track Saturday afternoon, landing on the Long Pond straight. It was on display on pit road Sunday morning - Dane Cook, the voice of Dusty, was on hand as the Grand Marshall. As pre-race festivities began, the plane taxied off pit road and through Turn 3 - it was supposed to take off during the pre-race ceremonies, and perform the fly over following the National Anthem. Unfortunately, shortly after heading down the track, we saw it being towed back toward the pits, and was pulled off onto an access road. Apparently they had some sort of problem, and it never flew.



    Jimmie Johnson's car had a special "Planes" paint scheme.

    Nice shots in both sets Moose! Just out of curiosity, where were the head-on shots taken from?

    NIce shots! Dannica could use a spanking!

    Love the vivid imagery.

    Hoping to get out there soon. Doing dinner with Mr G soon....
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    Thanks, guys! Steve, the head-on shot of Jr. and Danica's cars was taken from near the entrance to pit road, as they were entering the pits during practice.

    Thanks for the info John. Was that the same for the trucks that you had the head-on of?
