NHRA – Sledgehammer to the Chest

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.

Lucas Meets Lucas

I love photography and I love offroad racing, and getting to put the two together always makes me smile. However what I love the most is my family, and this weekend marked the first time that the three of us where able to all go to a race together as a family. We headed up to Las Vegas, the most kid friendly town in the world so that I could shoot Rounds 13 and 14 of the Lucas Oil Offroad Racing Series.

Chasing the 2010 SCORE Baja 1000 – My Story

For this years SCORE Baja 1000 my assignment was to chase the McMillin Racing team. My usual cohort was the legendary Scott Smith of Paradigm Productions, and our buddy Johnny “The Slayer” Rukkas. We headed down Wednesday morning to get down there before contingency started so that we made sure we caught them rolling through tech. Luckily for us, around 5:45am Scott got a text from Beau of McMillin Racing asking when we were headed down. Beau was already sitting in line waiting for tech to start in the #31 Trophy Truck, so we knew first thing when we got there we’d be able to catch them.

Crandon Raceway – Tradition Never Dies

Crandon is the biggest race of the year for short course, some would even say for all offroad. The track is rich with history and tradition. The course worker you see in turn one was also there 5 years ago, as is the person grading the track, and working the ticket booth. While some series have a hard time finding volunteers to help put on the race, the track and Crandon have to turn people away.

Every year Best In The Desert puts on the longest offroad race in the US called ‘Vegas 2 Reno’. Starting in the town of Beatty, the race travels through Nevada and ends in Dayton. (maybe call it Beatty 2 Dayton?)

2010 Over The Hump Series #9

After a week off I was back at it again shooting the Over The Hump Race Series out at Irvine Lake. I missed last weeks race because of Lucas’s first birthday falling on the same day. For that we head up to Long Beach and hung out at the Aquarium of the Pacific. I was excited to get back out there and shoot and see what new sections OTH added to the course.
