So, another month down and another FOTM open for submissions. This month's theme is...

June - Grudge match -- dirt vs. track

This is going to be a two part poll this month between those who like to do it in the dirt, and those who prefer to carve the apexes.
To keep the numbers more concentrated and not spread the voting out too much, There will be a limit of 7 entries per category with the top finisher from both Dirt and Track after the week of polling goes on to the final voting round for the last two weeks of the month.

Same rules as always:

-Photos must be in hosted format
-No more than 4 photo's per entrant
-Polls will begin when we get 7 entries from each group, or June 9th, whichever happens first.


PRIOR WINNERS (excluded from further monthly competition in 2010):
*January 2010 - LochSTi
*February 2010 - pleiad7 (non-exclusion month)
*March 2010 - fredskiyak
*April 2010 - Blue Fox
*May 2010 - mdg
*June 2010 -
*July 2010 -
*August 2010 -
*September 2010 -
*October 2010 -
*November 2010 -
*December 2010 -


For those future planners (upcoming topics):


July - Location Based -- Urban Outfitters--Industrial/City life
August - Seasonal -- Summer/beach/waterfront/track
September - Composition based -- "at work or play"... towing or hauling, load up your toys
October - Location based -- Rural locations -- Forest/woods/trails/off-road
November - Seasonal -- fall foliage
December - Composition based... Holiday Season! (gifts, deer, wildlife, santa, menorah, Christmas lights, etc.)

Dirt all the way. A Forester on the track is cool, but a Forester soft-roading or off-roading will always be to me a Forester in its element... and in such a direction would go my FOTM vote.

jwright77; there are so many good vibes coming from this photo series. I never thought I'd have the urge to turf my Subie through a huge mud puddle until now.

Thanks all! If it helps, I didn't take the pics, my buddy used my T1i and the 70-300 lens and stood back. And that little stunt cost me a new front bumper and headlight!

This was at the sandblast rally in Cheraw, SC

JW, your rear window was open during the mud shot. How dirty is your interior.
Good eye...it was trashed! I had mud in my hair, all over the roof. The back seats were covered! But it all came out, it was just really muddy sand.....still I totally destroyed my car that day. I don't for see me doing that again anytime soon! (until next year :biggrin:)

Very nice shots!
A few from my trip to the Ring last weekend:









If someone can help me host high resolution pics -as the size gets reduced when uploading them into photobucket and they loose the detail- I would appreciate it.
