Flames Heat Up NHRA Las Vegas

The more NHRA events that I go to the more I learn to appreciate the sport and its drivers. Being able to harness all that power and make it down the track in under 4 seconds in a pretty amazing feat for the teams, and being able to be right at the start line only a few feet away is pretty exciting.

20 Photos That Define The Mint 400

The Mint 400 is a great race filled with rich tradition and historic racing. While dormant for some time it has recently been brought back to life the past couple years and is now one of the most challenging offroad races in the states. Desert Offroad Racing is my favorite thing to shoot for many reasons. This past weekend I traveled to Las Vegas to cover The Mint 400, and here are 20 of my favorite photos from the weekends festivities.

2012 X Games RallyCross & Enduro X

This year marked the first time I shot the X Games, and was looking forward to the challenge. My two assignments were to cover the RallyCross and Enduro X events, both which are things that I had never photographed up to that point. Since both events were on the same day I knew a busy day was ahead, first having to shoot RallyCross during the day, head straight to the media center in the Staples Center to upload photos for Race-Dezert.com, then head into the stadium to shoot Enduro X.

2012 Baja 500 – Tidal Wave of Silt

The SCORE Baja 500 is always a journey in itself to photograph. While the race is going on the media have their own race to get from spot to spot as fast but as safely as possible in order to deliver what we need to our clients. A photographer has to prepare for a race the same way a team does. We have to prep our vehicles, we need to prerun the race course, we need to be ready for a long day out in the desert, and we have to be focused on our job at hand. The difference between a driver and a photographer is that once the checkered flag hits, we still have work to do. We need to edit photos and get them out to clients as fast as possible. We have to work for hours going through everything, backing them up, promoting ourselves, etc, etc, all before the next race. And in between all that fit in time for our families.

2012 BITD Parker 425

After taking two months off for the birth of our second child, our daughter Quinn, it was back to business as usual with the BITD Parker 425 race. I always enjoy shooting this race because it marks the beginning of another season, and the race itself is always fun to shoot. The different terrain, the long laps, and large entries always make for some interesting photos. The best place for photos though is always during qualifying at the race. With so many unlimited entries teams are going all out to try and qualify towards the top.

TORC In Crandon Gets Muddy

Nascar has Daytona, Formula 1 has Indy, and short course offroad racing has The Big House in Crandon. No other track has the rich history that Crandon does, and the amount of fans that show up haven’t been rivaled at any other track.
