I'm at an NHRA event for the very first time.  Rather challenging.  The car in this pic was probably doing 250+ mph when it passed me as it accelerated to around 312 within a couple hundred more yards.  Tough to pan and get tack sharp images, especially after dark.  Shot with a 5d Mk3, 70-200 2.8L II, 70mm, ISO 10,000, 1/1250 sec, f4.5. I normally shoot RAW, but I forgot that I had shot some images in JPEG yesterday and forgot to set it back to RAW. this image was straight from the camera with minor cropping. 
5d Mark III, 24mm f/1.4L II, 24-105 f/4L IS, 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, 100 f/2.8L IS macro, 135 f/2L, 3x 600EX-RT, ST-E3-RT, EF 1.4x III

Not bad jpeg or not!

I'd probably do better to invest more time and less money.
