Turkey Leg Classic
I'm posting these as a group because they don't make sense as stand-alone images. The Turkey Leg Classic is an annual remote-controlled auto race. The gasoline-powered autos have an average cost of about $1,200 and are capable of speeds faster than 50 miles per hour. On scale, these vehicles move faster than any race cars. It makes for an interesting shoot.
