Enveloped in so much noise, this chap appears to be in a state of quiet inner meditation, the header flames from the dragster glow as if an unholy halo. The people behind are in appreciative pain.

I'll bet those headphones are made to block the noise so that he can communicate with whoever, since there's a microphone near his mouth. Must be awfully loud, judging from the pained looks of the audience. Great shot!!!

@Bookfool: Around about 120 dB of noise, which hurts, and goes through the whole body, not just the ears.
How can such punishment be a pleasure......?? A great shot though.

The things some people go thru for pleasure . . I know that sound from ages back and can still feel my rib cage vibrating !

A very impressive shot, at the right moment, and an unusual dragster shot

he does seem focused beyond distraction.

All in a day's work. The contrast between the man and the crowd is a fantastic capture.

Alcohol or nitrous? Very cool shot... a great contradiction between the energy of the dragster and the contemplative nature of his expression!!
