El Mirage Speed Runs

May 6, 2007 I went to El Mirage with my friend Gene Woods and had a blast shooting the land speed record cars and bikes. It was my first time on the dry lake and I had a blast. I have a few short clips from this shoot on this channel, but being four years old, they are in low-resolution as that's all YouTube had then. I thought it would be neat to put this cool footage-up in full HD. The SCTA staff were unusually friendly, I showed-up unannounced and they treated me like I was The Network. There's not much footage of runs down the track as I don't have a long enough lens for that, although I did get a cool shot of old Bill Anderson being blown across the lake by the high cross-wind making him knock over an orange boundary cone! This video is for my friend Donald Lowrey.
