Party in the Poconos
Back on the grid, I recently traveled to document the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Party in the Poconos 400 in Long Pond, Pennsylvania.
As always, teamed up with Getty Images to photograph the race action, as we braved the weather until Sunday for the big race.
It's been unseasonably cold this NASCAR season and leading up to the Party in the Poconos 400 wasn't any different. Bundled up in jackets and attempting to stay dry from the rain seemed to be the main concern.
But as the day started on Sunday, we were given a great, sunny day to shoot the race. I had the opportunity to shoot the start and finish from the flag-stand which is always a lot of fun. Having a pack of machines speed underneath you is surreal.
A relatively clean race, at the end of the 160 laps, Jimmie Johnson, driver of the #48 Lowe's/Kobalt Tools Chevrolet, took home the checkered flag.
