Whenever I get the opportunity to photograph a motorsports event I’m always excited. I love the smell of racing fuel and the sound of race cars. Mostly these guys do this kind of stuff flat-out sideways on dirt, but this time they had to try to keep the cars pointed “mostly” down-track and on bumpy pavement. Welcome to USAC racing and the Copper World Classic.
I love this image because there is just so much going on and it is loaded with detail.
