For the first time in years, my year did not start off with either the North American International Auto Show or Sno*Drift. I decided to skip both because neither one really piqued my interest, so that left the door open for a whole new way to start the year.
Last year I was invited to an open house at RM Motorsports in Wixom, Michigan. Before that day, I only knew vaguely of RM and what they did, but I wasn’t ready for the shock I got when I entered their showroom. A couple weeks ago I got a message on Facebook from someone who […]
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 […]
By the time August rolls around the Tudor United Sportscar Championship season is already well underway, often making the 14 turn, 4.048 mile Road America a pivotal round in the series. This is the time of the season where teams need to look to extend a lead in points or gain points back. As always […]
There are 52 weekends in 2015 and about half of those are good enough for racing here in Michigan. Of course there are going to be multiple events on several of those weekends, and for the second year in a row I’ve been torn between two big events.
Another year of Life Blasting is over and what a trip it has been. From rally, to NASCAR, to drifting and sports cars. Unfortunately I couldn’t travel too far this year, but luckily the amount of events around the Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin area are some of the best in the country. For almost my […]
To put it lightly, there couldn’t have been a better way to end the first season of the TUDOR United Sportscar Championship. It was 65 degrees and sunny for 10 hours around Road Atlanta. I’ve photographed this track twice before, but both times were for Formula Drift, which takes place on a very specific part […]
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 Detroit River is home to a lot of things: cars, weapons, evidence and probably people. But in between Canada and Detroit is a little island called Belle Isle. Since the late 1800s, Belle Isle has been a park with casinos, aquariums, and a few boat clubs. The past several years it’s been a dangerous […]
The Streets of Long Beach have a 40-year history of hosting some of the West Coast’s best racing. From Formula 1 to Formula Drift, many famous drivers have braved its varied surfaces and concrete walls. This year I spent the Grand Prix weekend not so much looking for a story, but just for visuals during […]
Maybe only after the year I was born, 2013 has been one of the best years of my life. Between being allowed to relive races on here, and following Noble Star Rally around, it’s been an interesting and awesome year. I have to start off with this epic TVR Sagaris we randomly stumbled across in […]
Hi, I’m new Guest Blaster Brad Hodgin. I’m a 16 year old car lover and photographer from North Carolina. Virginia International Raceway is a very special place to me. It’s special because it is where I attended my first road race ever. I can still remember the first time my dad brought my brother and […]
Starting next year, American Le Mans and Grand Am will combine into one major series called the United SportsCar Racing Series. The first official race will be the 24 Hours of Daytona in January 2014, but Road America held the first “Double Header” weekend to bring the two together.
The Long Beach Grand Prix is a race weekend I look forward to every year, though it’s easily one of the most exhausting events from a photographer’s standpoint. The 24/25 hour races certainly take their toll, especially if you can manage to stay awake through the whole thing, but the LBGP’s wacky schedule and sheer […]
Street courses have always intrigued me. The sheer amount of planning and labor involved is absolutely mind-boggling. I took a trip down to Long Beach today to get a few shots of the in-between stages of the GP course. Like most street courses, they configure it in such a way that it can be opened […]
On a warm, sunny, and muggy day in Ohio, thousands of people came out to watch some of the most technical cars on our shores. The American Le Mans Series held its 6th race of the 2012 season, the simply titled Mid Ohio Sports Car Challenge.
The rain was all but a memory as everyone dragged themselves back to the GP circuit for the third day. The ALMS teams had packed up and gone, leaving their paddock empty save a smattering of show cars and classic Ferraris. But excitement was still in the air, as the weekend’s main event was still […]
