Mooresville dragway pics *56K go make a sandwich*

Went to Mooresville dragway today just to get out of the house and take some pics with the camera and new lens. The lenses I used were the Nikon 18-135mm kit lens and the Nikon 70-300MM VR. I tried some panning and launching pics. I took well over 250 pics but will only post about 20 or so here. Oh, and for the camera gurus that would like to know what I shot them at here it is. The ISO was between 100-160 all day. I was in shutter priority and set it between 1/200-1/250 for panning and aroung 1/500 for launching pics. This was my first time panning so be easy on me.

Yeah I am. The pics above aren't the best but was the best I could have done with no experience in it at all. I did make a few mistakes but will correct them for next time. I was told to use ISO 100 or 160 and should be fine. Well I was having a hard time getting the pics to not be under exposed at those ISO's. I was told on another site just yesterday that I should set the ISO to whatever gives me f8 at my set shutter speed. This way I would have room to open the aperture up if needed.
But man am I having fun!!

I am far from a pro but thanks for the kind words Mike. I am always taking pics of something or someone.
