First Series Win

"Ty Dillon, driver of the #3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet, celebrates with his team after winning the NASCAR Nationwide Series Lilly Diabetes 250 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on July 26, 2014 in Indianapolis, Indiana."

Nothing tastes sweeter than your first victory - and Ty Dillon, driver of the #3 Bass Pro Shops Chevrolet - showed the world just that.

During an overcast day at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Dillon held off the field to take the Nationwide Series Lilly Diabetes 250 checkered flag for his first ever win in the series.

Shooting for Getty Images, I had the always exciting opportunity to be perched in the flag stand over-top the finish line, and in Indianapolis, the famed bricks. Not only is this an unique angle, but drivers tend to celebrate right under the stand.

While the kissing of the bricks is the iconic shot, I loved the thrill and pure joy of Dillon. In a sport where driver's faces are typically shielded by helmets, it was a nice surprise to see a fist-clinching driver celebrate on the track rather than in victory lane.
