The NHRA season always ends in Pomona, CA but it always conflicts with my NASCAR schedule as its always during the race weekend in my hometown of Phoenix. This year I decided a month in advance that I would be doing Pomona and skipping NASCAR. Keep reading and you will see that I made the right decision.
Every year the cars and stars of the NHRA converge on Firebird International Raceway to test out their cars in preparation of the 2009 season which begins in two weeks. Preseason testing usually is the best time to get images of the drivers due to the small crowds and great access. Continue on to see my first motorsports shoot of the new year!

After a late night shooting NFL the previous day it was a 45 minute flight over to Ontario, CA to shoot my first nascar race in nearly two months. While this race is typically one of the most boring races of the year I continue to go because of the great light. I wasn’t disappointed!
