For the 2012 season of the Lucas Oil Off Road Series racing (LOORS) I tried to mix it up a bit with my images and I found some personal gratification from producing images of some drivers in their trucks. The way the screening and window net as well as the dash configuration sometimes made fitting my wide-angle lens between everything difficult so not every driver is represented and some shots just came out better than others. Here are a few that I liked:
Todd LeDuc gives me the eye as I grab images through the window net.

Metal Mulisha and Rockstar Energy Drink driver Brian Deegan gives me the thumbs up.

I hadn’t gotten any good helmet-on shots of Carl Renezeder in the past so getting these were lucky.
Carl Renezeder switched to Nissan bodies this year as a new, returning sponsor but Carl had a tough season.
Marty Hart looked fast all season in the Ready Lift sponsored truck, but like everyone else was fighting the dust on this day.
Corry Weller proves that not all the curves are on the track in short-course off-road racing.
In the past I hadn’t paid much attention to the pro buggy class but I felt I should change that and made a few images I liked.
There is nothing cooler than a pro buggy ripping through the bumps of a short-course track.
The light and the interaction between the loose dirt/dust made for some interesting images.
Who doesn’t love a bright pink buggy?
A bright pink pro buggy in golden afternoon light is like . . .
The pro buggy class isn’t as fast as the big Pro2 and Pro4 trucks but there is still plenty of excitement to be had by watching this class run.
Ryan Beat is one of the young drivers who is making a name for himself in the big truck classes and I’m sure you will hear more of him in the coming years.
Jerry Daugherty has been at this for a while and deserves every bit of respect the other drivers give him.
