One of my favorite desert races of the year to take photos at is the BITD Vegas to Reno race. I like shooting the long point to point races because it adds an extra step of preparation on planning out your race day strategy. Instead of being able to pick a different spot each lap, with point to point races you need to estimate how long you can stay at each spot, time it will take to get to the next spot, and factor in some cushion so that you don’t miss anyone at your next spot.
The weekend of October 26th marked the second to last race of the year for Best In The Desert. The Silver State 300 is a unique race because its based out of Alamo, NV and uses parts of Nevada that don’t typically see races. Because of this I was excited to go and have the opportunity to shoot some new areas.
