Return of the Three

"NASCAR fan Tony Wright wears a hat remembering the late Dale Earnhardt Sr., as he poses in the garage area during practice for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on February 22, 2014 in Daytona Beach, Florida."


Had you asked two years ago what Speed Weeks was - I couldn't have answered the question.

However, fast forward to 2014 and I now know the inside and outs of the two week event in Daytona Beach, Florida.

When I got my initial layout of my annual schedule, I was humbled to be included on the 14 day assignment in Florida with Getty Images. Being teamed up with the best motorsports photographers, teammates in the world was nothing short of an honor.

It was a great time of year to escape the cold, snowy weather of Baltimore and get to the warmth and sun, but what I didn't know was how hard we'd work as a team. Over two weeks we covered endless practices, multiple qualifying sessions, driver appearances, fans having fun, seven races, and much more.

A rewarding time, I learned a lot - and walked even more. I stepped more than 175,000 times for a total of roughly 85 miles.

With that said, here is a very loose edit of my favorites from the time in Daytona. Be sure to check out the entire team's take on Getty Images site, too. So many compelling images that one must see.
