    Judge Comment: There are some really strong images in this entry -- I love the shot of the pit crew at work that looks like a choreographed dance. It's really challenging to shoot car racing and make it exciting--still images often don't capture all of the movement that's happening, but these images made me feel like I was there. Be careful to edit tightly --some of the later images start to be not much more than simple portraits of the drivers, and you want to make sure your images tell a story.
