NASCAR at Watkins Glen

Shooting at Watkins Glen International is always a thrill and this was the first time I have worked there this year. NASCAR is a rather special thing at the Glen. The stock cars don't use the full circuit, they omit the "boot" so each lap is a bit shorter than when SRO or IMSA races there. The stands are usually full of people when the Monster Energy series rolls into town which adds to some racing views. Campers and tents fill the backgrounds, sometimes distracting from the action but that's the reality of the event. These are my favorites from the weekend.
