Look, I’m not going to pretend to understand what this whole Deep Dream interface thing is, but I know there are plenty of coding geeks who read Hooniverse who can explain it (and please feel free to do so in the comments; if you can’t geek out on Hooniverse, then you can’t geek out).

So I took a half dozen more shots from last weekend’s full 24-hour race (during which I may have hallucinated some similar-looking images in the depths of the very early morning hours) at Autobahn Country Club near Chicago and saw what I could see.
