Full Circle. The First time Kyle Larson Stepped Foot Into a Stockcar

After a rainy first day, it was all sunshine and fast cars at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Va., Thursday as ironically the 2011 Drive for Diversity Combine concluded with 26 talented drivers participating in the on-track testing. It also signaled the arrival of a young Kyle Larson to the NASCAR scene. I remember the buzz…

A billion spectators? The Dakar Rally and Its Global Reach!

I was on the coast in Southern Africa when I was introduced “as working for NASCAR.” As I began to explain, “No, not for NAS..” the other party said, “You mean like Robby Gordon?” They knew of NASCAR through the Dakar Rally. Years earlier Gordon had started infiltrating the global ranks, not for his prowess…

Ridin’ Dirty

This is one of my favorite videos I made and not for the production value. I think the opening shot I got from an off-limits location at Eldora did it for me. Plus Bubba in a cornfield.

How the Dakar Rally media has changed for the better

Covering the Dakar Rally. Multi-day, back to back Run and Gun Projects

The pic to the left was taken in NĂ©ma, Mauritania, back in 2006. Two years later the organizers would relocate the Dakar Rally to South America. Currently the Rally is…

Preditor: Scenes from NASCAR Hometracks (Now NASCAR Roots)

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…

Scenes from Bristol

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…
