Scenes From the Keweenaw Peninsula

For the fourth year in a row I made my way to Michigan’s Keeweenaw Peninsula for the final round of the Rally America National Championship. It is one of my favorite rallies and like most years the fall colors and the action didn’t disappoint.

Scenes From Sebring

For the second time this year I headed down to Florida for racing. This time for the final 12 hours of what is known as the 36 hours of Florida. The second stop on the 2016 IMSA Weather Tech Sports Car Championship and the second round of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup; The […]

24 Hours of Daytona

The night has a certain calm about it. A time to sit and reflect on the days events. It was noisy, the smell of race fuel was in the air and yet it was still calming. When I took this photo the race was already hours old. I was tired; everybody was. This was only […]

Best of Lapinski 2015

As the sun sets on 2015 I find myself going through photos that I feel are the best ones I have taken over the past year. Thing is I hate most of them. Might sound dumb but it is a way of growing and hopefully building off what you did wrong and becoming a stronger […]

Scenes From The Lake Superior Performance Rally

The final round of the 2015 Rally America National Championship; The Lake Superior Performance Rally. Brought with it crisp fall temperatures and wonderful colors. For the second year in a row I made the trip to cover the event, It rained and even snowed for most of the ride up. I was hoping it wouldn’t […]

When It Rains…Petit Le Mans 2015

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. There were supposed to be sunny skies, wonderful temps, and a beautiful sunset. This was the scenario that played out in my head in the weeks leading up to my trip to the 2015 Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The final race of the Tudor United Sportscar […]

Scenes From the North Woods

Northern Minnesota is a peaceful, relaxing place. A place where you can go to get away from it all. See the headwaters of the Mighty Mississippi River and in the of August watch rally cars blast through these lazy dirt roads with the arrival of the Rally America Ojibwe Forests Rally. I made the three […]

Scenes From Back to the 50s

Every year the Minnesota Street Rod Association hosts its annual Back to the 50s Weekend at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. It’s an absolute must for any car lover in Minnesota; heck, any car lover in the United States. I personally look forward to it every year. This year just under 12,000 cars model year 1964 […]

Rally in the 100 Acre Wood

Rally has always been an adventure for me. This year’s second round of the Rally America Championship – the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood – was no different. With cold temps and snow in the forecast I hopped in the car and made the 10 hour drive from Minneapolis to Salem, Missouri, to check […]

Red Bull Crashed Ice Saint Paul 2015

For the fourth year in a row the downhill madness known as Red Bull Crashed Ice came crashing into St. Paul’s Cathedral Hill and this time it was the opening round of the four-round 2015 season. Along with St. Paul the series will head to Helsinki, Belfast and Edmonton.

Best of Lapinski 2014

Well that’s it for 2014. I have a tendency after about a month to no longer like photos I have taken. This is how I hopefully continue to improve; take mistakes and build from them. I have grown an interest in photographing sunsets in 2014, so here is the one that turned out the best.

Cold and Damp: The Lake Superior Performance Rally

Known as the “oldest, meanest and toughest rally on the circuit,” the Lake Superior Performance Rally storms into Houghton, Michigan for the 8th and final round of the 2014 Rally America championship, marking the 20th anniversary of this event in the process.

USCC and the Road Race Showcase

Every year I’ve looked forward to two races at Road America: the Grand Am Rolex Series race and the American Le Mans Series race. In 2013 the two series shared the weekend; with Grand Am on Saturday and ALMS on Sunday; this year they arrived for the first time as the combined Tudor United SportCar […]

The Bearded Lady Motorcycle Freakshow

Motorcycles were never really something I was into until a couple years ago. Many factors have contributed to my liking of them, whether it was growing older or just wanting to branch out to something different from cars; while my knowledge of them is still in its infancy I’m glad I’ve gained an interest in them.
