SSP very much appreciates the efforts and
talents of the photographers who faithfully practice their craft, week in and
week out at the speedway. In appreciation, SSP will be featuring some of your shots within the pages of this
website. We will
also be providing a info page listing each participating photographer's contact
info, so that our viewers can reach you directly.
In order to keep this weekly process running as smoothly and
quickly as possible, there are some important guidelines that we ask you to follow.
Each week's photos will be incorporated into a
new Shockwave Flash animated slideshow. This not only makes for a nice
presentation, it also makes it extremely difficult for anyone to print any
unauthorized copies of your work. However, using this method takes a great
deal of time. Once one of these slide shows have been produced, they
are not easily re-edited. Therefore anything you can do as described
in the following guidelines will help to keep this process running smoothly.
Each week, a
maximum of 20 photos per slide show will be featured.
(Otherwise file size and load times for viewers simply become
too excessive, especially for those with dialup connections.)
The number of
shots featured per photographer will be dependent on the number
of photographers submitting, the quality of the shots submitted,
as well as shots that may be repetitive in nature. (For
example, similar shots of the same car, person, or event,
submitted by multiple photographers.)
Please, do not submit more than 10 photos per event.
There have been occasions when 30, 40, or more photos
have been attached to a single e-mail! With multiple
photographers submitting shots for them same event, the mailbox
quickly exceeds it's limit (12 megs) and other's submissions do not get
through. Please, be considerate.
Try to submit a mix of action, winners circle, crowd shots,
or any shots you feel reflect the excitement and atmosphere of the
event. Try to also include shots of that evening's special events (school buses,
street car drags, kid's games, etc.).
Choose and submit what
you feel are your 10 best shots. (10 shot maximum)
certain they meet the dimensions and format specifications as
shown below. (Our webmaster can take care of of
adding your copyright info if you do not have the means to do
If not already
listed, be sure to
include whatever contact info you want posted on the photographer's
page (Name, e-mail address & website URL) so that you can be directly
contacted by the viewer.

Please note the deadlines for submitting photos listed below.
The Flash animation slide shows
featuring SSP's events take up to 2 hours each to
create. Because of time constraints, if you wish to have your photos included,
you must submit them before the following deadlines:
- Photos from
Saturday Night events must be submitted no later than 6:30 PM Monday

Nearly every week there are
some excellent shots that are not included simply because they were
submitted too late!
Images should be in JPG
format at a resolution of 72 pixels per inch.
Images should have a maximum
height or width of 500 pixels.
