Last night, me, Mark, Silverback, hazey22, Mark's brother-in-law and the boys went to the Supercross event in St. Louis. I wasn't in a great seat (but tickets were only $10 so I can't complain), plus the people in front of me kept standing up, so I couldn't get a lot of good pictures; but there are a few decent ones in the mix:

The fireworks from the start of the show:

Looks like a lot of fun! I've never been to a motocross.

Yes, $10 is a great price...I was just checking ticket prices for Clash of the Titans 3D. With matinee discount they are $11.50 each. :huh:

My Brother in law and Nephew went down there last night , They go to that every year , Last year they bought some special passes and tickets from a scalper outfront , Dont know exactly what passes they were but they got them into the back and hung out with travis pastrana and a whole bunch of the riders. Great pics guys , looks like a good time.

Pit passes are my guess, Trevor,(my youngest) and I went down there about 1:30pm yesterday and did the Monster and Yeger party, he was able to get in on the Spike TV octagon set up and beat a kid up with the sticks, the kid sucker shot him when he was getting up on the post to knock him off the first time, what a mistake, Trevor nailed his butt 3 times after that, the last time he knocked him all the way to the fence. We go down every year, Dirtworks does the track, but this year the equipment rental place gave them the equipment and me buddy could only get so many tickets, (that was the reason for the confussion with the tickets) Last year Travis P. designed the track, and he took a bike outside and did some stuff up Washington Ave. the guy can ride. So next year Mac your coming too, with your boys.

Yep, the shirt's awesome, thanks! :cool:

Hopefully, I'll have a new camera by the time MonsterJam and Supercross come back around next year; but if not, at least I know what to expect and should be able to get some nicer pics.

What are you going to buy?

Probably just an up to date version of the Canon Digital Rebel that I have now, hopefully a 12 megapixel or higher (my current camera is an 8 megapixel). I also hope to have a better telephoto lens; but the good ones are incredibly expensive ($1600 or more).

Cool!! I shoot a Nikon D50 and I've been pondering upgrading recently. Just haven't decided yet....

What sort of lens would you like to get?

Awesome pics! My husband and I usually go to Supercross in Indy every Feb. We didnt go this past year. Its kinda odd to watch a race without Carmichael! LOL, its a good time though, Im glad you enjoyed it. I think we are going to take our son next year. He'll be 6 and loves the bikes! :)

You should, to do the SUPERCROSS you have to make a day of it, go in the pits and enjoy what they have to offer, the Monster Trucks are a thrill all to themselves. Both events are a real good time.:happydancing::happydancing::happydancing:
