Photos were pretty good, selected posted here. Weather was sunny and warm (about 65 degrees). Used favored 70-200 F4L lens on Canon 5D, ISO 400. During the high-end 1/2/3 race, my friend Myron compelled me to get into the Carrera race lead car. I turned around in the convertible, hung over the back and shot a lot. Pretty bouncy ride, but a few interesting pictures came through. Hopped out after three laps, feeling nauseated.

Tyson's Corner Circuit Race, 04.05.2009
Pretty mellow but long and diverse day at Tyson's Corner Circuit Race. Carolyn started on site at 6:30 AM and I followed about seven with Avery. We helped Tom and Judy Kendall and NCVC Junior parents set up food tent, barbecue etc. Because ambulance was late, I was tasked with serving as EMT so the first 8:00 AM race could get started. Unfortunately, I was on and off duty all day because ambulances had to run various folks to the hospital, a few with serious injuries. (I covered while the ambulances were off-site.) Finished about 6:00 PM, following 1/2/3 race and clean up.
