Qualifying is about to go down for the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno off-road race. Gordon is breaking out the unicorn with its very own mask.
If you watch to the end you’ll see the old Robby’s Uprising logo. I’m pretty sure we were doing social media before social media. Thanks, ning.
Right below the top 3 NASCAR series (Cup, Xfinity, Trucks) are the two NASCAR K&N Series (East and West). I came to think of it where stockcar dreams came to die.
At this level, it costs shy of a million dollars a year to race an entire season. Here you either shine or run your family out of money.
NASCAR hired me to give the series some love. I traveled, shot, edited, and turned around a finished product within 4 days.
Red Bull’s slogan was “Gives you wings“.
This was their slogan for over 20 years until one consumer, Benjamin Careathers, decided to sue the company for ‘false advertising’, arguing that after 10 years drinking Red Bull he neither had wings nor any enhanced athletic or intellectual performance.
Robby Gordon begs to differ.
I shot this photo out a Glamis with an Olympus C2100UZ, which was my second digital camera ever. I remember wanting to decal up the bottom of the truck before this but never got around to it. Wish we had.
Interestingly at the time, Robby had an personal services agreement with Red Bull (he wore their helmet in NASCAR), and they we’re more concerned about Robby showing up at Glamis in full Red Bull color than winning the Baja 1000.
Going through some the old footage that I shot for NASCAR Hometracks (now dubbed NASCAR Roots) if found this shoot and edit.
Looking back at all my old videos I wish they had less music and more natural sounds. One of the things @planetrobby and myself have learned with motorsports videos through Stadium Super Trucks is music kills views.
This one was not terrible.
The part that got me was remembering Mike Stefanik. He was always great in victory and defeat.
Jamie Hylton called and said, “I got this kid.”
Story to follow. Stay tuned.
Bubba’s first words to me while working with Revolution Racing (now Rev Racing) were:
You’re my new PR bitch.A confident 6413 day old Darrell Wallace Jr.
Wrong I told him. You’re your new PR bitch.
I was right.
