As The Dust Settles
The final runs are making their way back to their trailers and people are packing up for the day. Some people stayed over night in their trailers on the frigid lake bed for the following day. Unfortunately, the next day didn't last long because of the gusty winds and visibility was hindered by all the dust. With all the dust in my nose and throat I don't think I could've tolerated the next day and focusing pictures would have been difficult as well. Although I could've photographed all day, it was time to cap the lens and head home. This was the last SCTA event at El Mirage for 2015 so I'm looking forward to the 2016 season for more action. See ya'll on the salt next time!
Unfortunately for the Wild Turkey, it blew a head gasket on it's one and only run. They didn't have a spare for the day so they had to call it quits for this event. Next year it's 200 or bust!
And lastly before we took off from the lake bed, Chris and I with our usual antics searched for an open area for him to whip out some donuts in his truck. I don't usually condone in deviant driving (after getting multiple speeding, racing, and illegal modification tickets) but this was an opportunity to not pass up. So here's a few shots of Chris the Donut Man and his Chevy truck making dust fly before an official stopped us and warned us about the $10k fine if we were caught.
