This past November I had the opportunity to help out photographer and friend Mark Rebilas at the NHRA Finals at the Auto Club Raceway in Pomona, CA. Surprisingly this would be the first time that I’d shoot anything that wasn’t on dirt, so I was excited to shoot something new and different. My biggest challenge would be never having even been to a drag racing event, getting used to the schedule of how things are run. Little did I know my biggest challenge would be getting used to a Top Fuel car going by me at 200+ mph only 6 feet from me.
