Back in 2010, I was lucky enough to shoot the ANRA Summer Nationals, held at Famoso Raceway, near Bakersfield, California. One of the many cars that caught my eye there was this cool bucket style altered, today's Photo of the Day subject. ANRA's focus on Nostalgia racing brings out some really cool cars and while the March Meet and the California Hot Rod Reunion are their most famous annual meets, all their meetings are well worth checking out.

Today's Photo of the Day comes from the 2017 Westernationals at the Perth Motorplex, and features Top Doorslammer driver Scott MacLean, seen here in a rare Sunday morning qualifying session.

While not usually ideal for the drivers, it is the only time we get to see a Doorslammer hit the Motorplex strip with the sun on the left hand side of the car, so it provides for a unique photo opportunity.
