Only takes a few seconds more both on the scene and in front of the computer.

This shot still burns me that I didn't think of it at the time. Ugh.

You will NEVER again see blown number boards like that from me.

I learned from my mistakes, and when my buddy Aaron went to shoot this at night, I told him to take multiple exposures and make sure he had one where the number boards weren't blown out. I then processed the image for him combining two exposures. The overall shot had blown number boards but I was able to save it due to one of the shorter exposures he captured:
