Here's a pic I received from Australia, showing the bonus for qualifying #8 in the field on June 10, 2001, at the Konica Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway. Can you even begin to imagine what the top qualifier gets?
The photo was taken down behind the scrutineering (tech inspection) shed
Unfortunately, I've only got first names. The photog was Chris The Kiwi and the girls were Fiona (the redhead) and Michelle (the blonde). Let's just call the ugly guy in the middle anonymous!
Chris sold us (Northern Thunder) the roll of film so there's no worry about any copyright issues involving the use of the pic.

Here's a pic that Carl Witt of Dragmania took of Mark Brew and me burning out prior to the first round. It's kind of a neat shot, even if a little fuzzy. And frankly, I didn't even realize Brew and I went side by side on the burnout!
