A few weeks ago the final race of the 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) would visit my hometown of Phoenix for their championship race. On top of loving the hell out of this sport for the excitement, cool drivers and amazing photo access I was motivated to produce cool stuff since this would be my last motor sports event of the year.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of participating in a pretty cool project for ESPN the Magazine. To make a long story short they hired 25 photographers around the world to all shoot a sporting event on the same day (May 7th). My editor asked if I would be interested in covering the Supercross championship race in Vegas. I couldn’t say yes quick enough!

The highlight of May every year for me is knowing I will be in Indiana shooting the greatest motorsporting event in the world, the Indianapolis 500. With 2011 being the 100th anniversary of the first race it was guaranteed to be a big deal. Little did we know, those of us in attendance would also witness one of the most exciting 500 finishes ever.

The second stop on the 2011 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) would take me 45 minutes from my bed to the town of Surprise, home of the Speedworld Off Road Park. I’m not a big fan of the town of Surprise but I am a big fan of off road racing so it was sure to be a good weekend.

After shooting NASCAR and NHRA the previous month I was very excited to shoot the season opening race for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS). Even more exciting though was the fact the race was taking place just 10 miles from my place. One of my favorite sports + a weekend in town = WINNING!

After a month of drag racing, baseball and football I was super excited to get back out on the dirt to shoot the stars of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series as they made their second stop of the year at Speedworld in Surprise, AZ. On top of the normal action stuff I shoot I decided prior to the event that it was time to bring out my soft box setup and do some driver portraits.

As most of you guys know I shoot several NASCAR races every year. 34 of the 36 races races take place on various oval tracks but two occur on road courses where the drivers have to make left and right turns. Thats where things get fun. On top of seeing top level drivers look like confused amateurs it also is great to shoot unique photos that you cant get at any other tracks.

Last year I was fortunate enough to cover a couple of off road races and I loved it. Prior to this season I was lucky enough to be offered the position as the official photographer for the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS). After some brief negotiating it was a done deal. Here are some of my favorite images from my first weekend working for the series.

A few months ago I went all out with remotes while covering the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) in Lake Elsinore but I was feeling too lazy this time so I instead tried to get a decent variety of images without trying too hard. Keep reading to see what I came up with.

As a sports photographer most of my time is spent covering the major pro sports such as MLB, NFL and NASCAR. While that gives me a good variety of events to cover it still gets redundant always shooting the same top level sports. One thing I do to take a break from those sports is to look for cool and interesting events to cover when I have time. Off road trucks flying through the air over dirt jumps definitely would qualify as something different from the norm. Buckle up and hang on!
