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.

Thanks to NHRA being rained out in nearby Commerce, GA I was able to get credentialed on short notice to cover NASCAR at my favorite track, Talladega.  Due to NHRA obligations I missed both of last years races for the first time since 2006 so I was very happy to be at the craziest track in NASCAR.

XXXXNASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Carl Edwards celebrates with a backflip after winning the Subway Fresh Fit 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.

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!

XXXXNASCAR K&N Pro Series West driver Kelly Admiraal (83) goes airborne after crashing into Dallas Montes (29) during the Talking Stick Resort 60 at Phoenix International Raceway.

Day two of racing at PIR would consist of some Sprint Cup practice followed by the Nationwide race only to be followed by one more race, the K&N Pro Series West. It was a rough and banging day in the desert so lets get to it.

XXXXGrandstands sporadically filled with fans look on as NASCAR Mexico Series drivers go through turn one during the Toyota 120 at Phoenix International Raceway.

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!

February always means two things for me. Superbowl and Daytona. I already did the Superbowl blog so lets take a look back at an action packed trip to the World Center of Speed. The Daytona International Speedway.

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!

With the bulk of the motorsports I shot this year being NHRA drag racing I was unable to cover as many Off Road races and NASCAR as I usually used to do. With that in mind I combined the two motorsports into my latest installment of my “Best of 2011” series. Strap in and hold on…

The previous race I covered was an epic championship race for the NHRA so heading to Miami for NASCAR I was hopeful for another close championship race. Close would be understatement as heading into the race Carl Edwards led Tony Stewart by an astoundingly close three points. Time to award some hardware!
