Very few sports have the visual appeal that drag racing has.

I am a lucky guy to cover the sport for a living that I grew up a fan of. Continue on to check out my favorite blog of the year…

Still have a few more Best of 2012 galleries to post before we start with 2013. This time its my favorite Nature/Scenery from the year. Very rarely do I actually go out intending to cover nature but since I almost always carry my camera with me it leads to most of these random photos.  Enjoy!

It is finally time to bring my “Best of 2011″ series to an end with everyones favorite category (except those who appear in these pics) with my Best of Crash and Burn. Not many years ago many of the crashes you see in this post would have resulted in injuries for the drivers but thanks to todays safety technology every driver seen in this blog would walk away. The same can’t be said for their race cars!
