NASCAR is one of my favorite sports to shoot. In 2009 I found myself covering several more races than I initially planned at the start of the season. Thats a good thing though because it allowed me to get some pretty cool shots which makes for a better year in NASCAR photos! Enjoy.

As with the previous four years of covering NASCAR the final race of the 2009 season would once again be all about Jimmie Johnson. This time he was closing in on a historic (and unprecedented) fourth straight championship.

With the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in their playoffs, also known as the Chase, it is now time for me to shoot less football and now focus on lots and lots of NASCAR. My first of seven playoff races I will be covering was at the 1.5 mile Kansas Speedway. While it is not one of my favorite tracks, it is a nice facility and (most importantly) its a less than two hour flight from my home in Phoenix.

It has been three years since I made the trip to the rolling hills of the wine country to cover NASCAR as they raced around the winding turns of Infineon Raceway. NASCAR has 38 races a year and only two of them occur on tracks with left and right turns. This is the first road course of the season. It makes things a pain in the ass for drivers as well as us photographers.

Last week I was shooting a boring race in overcast weather in California, this weekend I found myself in sunny Las Vegas shooting NASCAR on the much more exciting Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Although anything would have been better than last weekend, Vegas would prove to be a great weekend with lots of cool photos.

The race I look forward to more than any other is the Daytona 500 every February in Florida. Typically it is one of the most exciting races of the year and is always great with photo sales. During the first 8 days of Daytona it did not rain once. Of course on race day it would all change and make for a dreary and disappointing day for myself, the 100 thousand plus fans in attendance and millions watching on TV around the world.

Just three months ago NASCAR closed out their 2008 season down in Miami. At that time I was close to burned out after a pretty rough schedule of races and was glad to see it end. As it always works, after a few weeks off, I was ready for it to come back. The 2009 season began this weekend up the Florida coast in Daytona Beach, where the stars and cars of NASCAR and the ARCA series wasted no time in destroying some cars.

2008 was a good year for me covering NASCAR, and although for the second straight year I shot less races than the year before I feel I produced many more quality photos in the shorter time span.

Ended up in the popular tourist destination over Dover, Delaware for the second race of the NASCAR Chase for the Cup. Normally Dover is pretty good for some action but some weekends can be duds. This weekend was one of them.
