My last shoot of 2011 was up in Vegas where I shot UFC 141 at the MGM Grand. The main fight of the evening was a heavyweight matchup between Alistair Overeem and Brock Lesnar but it would be upstaged by the prior fight between Donald Cerrone and Nate Diaz.

Nearly all my life I have been covering drag racing but never have I covered near as many events as I did in 2011. With that said lets jump right into the second to last “Best of 2011” blog with my best drag racing photos of 2011.

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…

A few months ago my editor from ESPN.com called to see if I would be available to go to Vegas to shoot a UFC fight. A quick glance of my calendar showed the weekend was already booked for an NHRA shoot…. that just happened to be in Vegas! The wheels in my head quickly turned and I figured out that I would be able to do both the shoots. It would make for quite the tiring (and stressful) weekend.

With the NHRA down to its final two races, the stop at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway would be a pivotal race for those with 2011 championship aspirations. With the largest nitro fields of the year it was sure to be a can’t miss race!

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!

Race three on the 2011 NHRA tour took us to nearly everyones favorite stop on the 300 mph traveling roadshow, Las Vegas! I like Vegas more because its a nice track to shoot at and most importantly its close to Phoenix so I am able to drive my own car instead of some lame economy rental car. After this weekend I am guessing this track will now be one of Antron Browns favorite tracks as well. On to the strip!

The 2011 NASCAR season is now in full swing and the question everyone is wondering is if Jimmie Johnson will win his sixth straight Sprint Cup Series championship. There is a long line of top drivers doing everything they can to prevent that from occurring. At the top of that list is Carl Edwards. On to the races!

A new category in my best of series this year is my best portraits. While I rarely shoot portraits I have been doing my best to make an effort to start doing more so I can get better at them. While the photos in this post are not on the level of my sports action stuff I will share them anyways.

With the racing season quickly winding down I found myself heading to Vegas for the boys and girls of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series as they made their third and final trip of 2010 to Las Vegas for another wild and crazy weekend of high flying action.
