Canon 1Dx, 600mm, 8000iso, f5.6, 1/1000th, Manual Kurt Busch (78) flies atop of the car of Ryan Newman (39) as Danica Patrick hits the wall during a multi car accident during the Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway.

After two days of sunny skies we would arrive to the track on race day to overcast skies. While cloudy makes the long day less strenuous, Phoenix is one of the best tracks for nice light so it was a slight disappointment to not have the wonderful sun light to work with. On to the race!

Been a year since I have covered NASCAR at my home track, Phoenix International Raceway. While I am not near into the sport like I used to be I figured with an open weekend I would go out to the track and have some fun shooting the traveling circus that is NASCAR!
