Sure, get a shot of my co-driver and not me!!!
Anyway, it looks like you got the motion blur/panning down well. I like the "other" shots as well.
I hope the other guy I spotted for from Columbia City (914 guy who was just there to spectate) gets his shots on a site and posts the link here. JJ, I cannot comment about your "equipment envy" other than to say that the other guy has a fixed focal length lense (300mm, I believe).
