What would a race be with out a Ferrari?

This is a 430 GT Ferrari racing in the American Lemans Series at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah. Piloted by Mika Salo and Jamie Melo, the Ferrari came from the back of the grid to win it's class, GT2, in dramatic fashion. There is something wonderful to see a Ferrari hurtling around a track, hearing the scream of the motor (sad that it's not a V12...but the V8 still sounds pretty good), and the squeal of the tires. It quickens the heart, directs your attention, and stirs your soul.

Nothing special on the image, shutter priority @ 1/125 to track the car at the end of the front straight at ~190 MPH. Everything else was all Nikon.
