Didn’t realize they finally brought back the #3. Don’t keep up with NASCAR. But I’ll never say no to a chance to go to a race.

This is why a camera with Auto is good to have. Having to slow the shutter way down to compensate for a fixed ISO. Also the cooler was empty at this point.

Restart.

That’s the end of all the decent pics I got. I was using my Leica M6. Most of these were taking using a used Leica Elmarit f/2.4 90mm lens I recently picked up. Films used were Kodak Portra 400 and Ektar 100.Definitely need a faster lens and faster film next time. As soon as we got to our seats, the sun fell behind the stands so I was sitting in the shadows. Oh well, turned out well enough for me to look at a couple times and put in a drawer never to be looked at again until I have kids and they find them. Got a lot of practicing still left to do.
