Wind chills made it difficult to shoot but the rain from yesterday and fast-moving cloudy skies provided a nice backdrop for a track that's typically just clear skies and dry yellow dirt.  I'm all in for photo ops and it being my first Gridlife event, I'm excited to see their time-attack "TrackBattle Brackets" format.  Its Superbowl Sunday and I expected low attendance but its a good turnout.  A nice mix of talent of drivers, track/race cars and media.  Met up with friends and new people; putting a name to a face, car, camera or a social media @account is always fun.  The first half of the event ran like a typical track day, run groups out on track for HPDE and Qualifying.  But for the other half, that's when everything gets turned up a few notches.  Two cars are released onto an open track in a Tōuge style lead-follow battle. Green flag... gap 'em.  Blue flag, switch positions.  Green flag, close the gap and take the win at the checkered.  Live commentary and post-race interviews over the PA loudspeakers, as well as the crowd cheering, heightened the excitement.  This was a great experience, and I'm a fan of this time-attack format.  I hope we get more of this here in the West Coast.  But for now, check out these photos - Jeremy Adajar [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
