2015 Duck Commander 500 from Texas Motor Speedway

You'll never forget this roar

This weekend’s Duck Commander 500 was a FANTASTIC race! Lots of great racing in the field — the battle between Harvick and Junior in the final laps was an absolute blast to watch.

Dad’s season ticket package included pit passes this year, so I got a few decent photos from down on the infield. Here they are. Enjoy!

Let’s go racing, boys!

Anatomy of a Flip

It’s been a while since I shared any of my racing photography. I’ll be going back to Texas Motorspeedway this weekend for the Duck Commander 500. Dad and I still go to the “Church of the Quad-Oval” pretty religiously, but I’ve been slacking in the photography department (in general, not just racing) lately.

I’ll try to be better about that.

I’ve been browsing through my archives, and thought I’d share a few of the gems I find. I’ll also be posting some previously unpublished stuff to the blog soon.

Daytona Pics

Three Wide on the Banks

This is a long overdue post.

After the Daytona 500 Dad and I drove back to Texas and I turned right around and headed to Kansas to help take care of my grandmother. I uploaded some of the pics to Flickr, but I never got around to posting them here. Sorry ’bout that!

Here are the pics from the truck race. There aren’t many of them. It was a little too dark to get much with the lens I was using. (Or just about any lens, for that matter.)

And here are the pics from the main event. The weather wasn’t cooperating, but I still got a few decent shots. (Although I would have had more had I not made a bigtime rookie mistake and ignored my settings as the sun set.)

Regardless, the race was a ton of fun. This is one of those things you HAVE to see in person at least once in your life.

Pictures from Daytona: The Gatorade Duels

The Deuce is Loose
(View this one big HERE.)

My Dad and I were lucky enough to receive tickets to the Daytona 500 for Christmas. (Best. Mom. Ever!)

I’ve posted my pics from Thursday’s Gatorade Duels HERE.

Photos from Friday’s truck race may not make it up quite so quickly, since it’s a night race and we won’t likely make it back until late and we have to turn around and go back ridiculously early for the Nationwide race the next morning.

Me, shirtless, with trucks

I really did miss my calling as a beefcake model, didn’t I?

(I figure I’ve embarrassed mom enough for a while, it’s time to turn the scanner on myself.)
