I love taking pictures of drag racing cars. I want to be able to get more control of depth but want to use the repeat shutter setting. How can I get the depth of field and make the car the main focus of the picture in an action shot?

I haven't shot the drags since the days of manual focus lenses & film so it's going to be much easier to learn now. Your goal is very similar to what I do shoot these days & I have an article on line that should be a good start and then combine that info with my motorsports comments in a thread here. You may need to buy a lens (depending on what you already have) & if so I recommend either the 70-200 f4 L or the 70-300 IS as good choices.

Learning good panning technique will take a while, but it's the trick to getting the right result when combined with the right shutter speed.
