I spent close to a dozen years taking photos at local dirt tracks, mainly as track photographer at Madison Speedway in Madison MN. I spent a lot of time at Fiesta City Speedway in Montevideo and Canby Speedway as well. And there were the occasional trips to Alexandria's Viking Speedway, Casino Speedway, Red River Valley Speedway and Brown County Speedway. It was a great gig. I got to know a lot of cool people and collected way too many images. As I write this I'm still working on sorting out and posting some of them online. A good share (pre-2006) are film-based, when 24 or 36 exposures had to cover a night of racing. That's a few pixels short of the 700-plus images routinely captured on just one digital card today. And if you subscribe to the minimalist theory that "less is more", that might just be a good thing!
