This year has been nothing but great. Every event so far, has been fast, cool, or just Race Cars Always. After spectating with a friend on Friday for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, I thought I wouldn’t have the itch to shoot some cars. Well it’s been years since I’ve taken it to the grandstands and become part of the Spectators Section, and luckily for me I had a friend that was willing to roll along with me. So the food is still expensive as hell, the drinks too, but the walking around and checking out booths and cars felt much different. I didn’t have my camera with me to capture some moments, or make small talk to fellow photogs. I just took it in as I should, saw familiar faces but didn’t interact much. Just as I remembered back years ago of just being a fan of the sport.  […]

Some people have never heard of this growing giant that has become a worldwide phenomenon. I honestly don’t know when it all started, but from what I can remember back in my tracking days it was really fun. You register , drive to the track and race not against others bumper to bumper, but against the Clock. You have to set a time and beat it every chance you get. The only thing is, no audience and really no true payout or anything like that. Now we got events throughout the US and if it wasn’t noticeable before, everywhere in the world, it’s a Big thing, especially in Japan on the Standard Tsukuba Circuit hundreds, if not thousands of cars fill up the tracks in Japan on Time Attack days.

More like a million, but that would be over exaggerating. The estimated number in attendance was about 25,000 plus people and maybe more. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to see and meet everyone as I planned. I mean I flew all the way from L.A. to Newark, then to Virgina shuttled out to get my rental car, and drove another hour and a half to find this so called Drag Racing Gem also known as WCF Imports vs Domestics. In its 19th year, this one (my first one ) did not disappoint at all. Friends and fans have been telling us to come and with the World Famous SEMA on the same week at this event we have always gone to Vegas it being closer and from history SEMA Week in Vegas has been a party of a lifetime. But I opted out and decided to take a chance and head over to Maryland International Raceway to see these Drag Racing Monsters from all over the World Battle for supremacy. […]

Trend – A fad or cultural change developed by a group or population of individuals. 5-10 or maybe even 20 years ago the straight line speed culture was between Quarter-Mile Drag Racing and Land Speed Racing throughout the industry, with the uncommon 1/8th mile in the mix the competition of mostly race cars to street cars could be found in the pits. Fast forward to 2014 and now you have more than a smattering of half-mile and one mile race events going on worldwide, generally dominated by exotic or full blown and built […]
