2018-12-03 Motorsports Monday

I'm spending some time reflecting on the past year and remembering some significant moments and sharing them here. Earlier this year I was given the opportunity to begin work with a great group of photographers at Nigel Kinrade Photography to cover some NASCAR events they needed help with. The first event I helped with took place at Texas Motor Speedway back in April of this year. As with any new job I was a bit nervous about fitting in and what was expected of me, but I quickly came to grips with everything and was made to feel right at home. I remember I was thinking it would be nice to get into a little warmer weather this early in Spring but I was mistaken. It was one of the coldest Aprils in Texas on record and one day it barely reached 40 degrees. These are a few of my favorite images from that weekend. (Press F11)

Countdown to Daytona

With only 34 days left until the running of the #Daytona500 I thought I would share one of my favorite #NASCAR pictures from last year that doesn't have a car in it, and isn't even at a racetrack. For the race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway there is a hauler parade that takes place as the teams roll into town. All the transports gather at one end of "The Strip", while the police shut down traffic, and slowly, with all the glitz and flash of Las Vegas the eighteen wheelers roll through Sin City. The City of Lights celebrates a NASCAR weekend in its own special way. @Actionsports #ActionSports #MotorsportPhotography #SportsPhotography #LasVegas #Vegas #racing

2015 NASCAR rolls into Sin City

NASCAR at Michigan International Speedway

Thi was my first time visiting Michigan International Speedway so I didn't know what to expect.  I find some of the big NASCAR tracks a little intimidating because of the scale of covering an event.  A two mile racetrack can take a long time to walk around.  The weather played a huge factor in the main event on Sunday bringing the Quicken Loans 400 to an end prematurely.  Kurt Busch (driver of the #41 Haas Automation Chevrolet) was the beneficiary of the early conclusion and this marked his second win of the season. His brother Kyle Busch (driver of the #54 Monster Energy Toyota) won the Xfinity series race, the Great Clips 250, on Saturday.  This was his first race in the Xfinity series since his crash back in February at Daytona International Speedway .
