Well here we are, 100 years in the making. Well not years exactly, but runnings. The first 500 was held in 1911, but six races were missed due to World War I and World War II. Here we are in 2016, the biggest Indy 500 ever, and easily one of the biggest races ever, period.
Benicia, California: Another year, another tally mark on the wall of life. In many ways, 2014 had been the worst year of my life, so I was happy when January 1st, 2015 came around. I was nearing the end of my 1980 CB650 build, and on a rainy January night I rolled it outside in […]
A few weeks ago a friend of mine sent me a text asking if I was busy on December 6th. I opened the attachment and saw it was for RM Motorsports, local company that specializes in restoring historic race cars.
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.

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 […]
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 […]
As if the awesomeness on Friday wasn’t enough, I went back for more on Saturday! I was disappointed that it was no longer raining, but sun meant no cancelled sessions. I had World Challenge and Indy Lights practice to look forward too, as well as drifting, Indy practice, and qualifying, before the main event of […]
