Chasing the Unicorn

Vegas to Reno Robby Gordon Helicopter Footage

Posted by Sharkgistics on Saturday, August 15, 2020

We had the opportunity to shoot the maiden race of the freshly configured 4×4 Trophy Truck of Robby Gordon.

While an early driveshaft yolk setback took them out of contention for the day, the Unicorn made it to the finish without any other challenges.

Dakar Rally Projects

This collection is from a youtube playlist that only contains Dakar Rally from Africa (and the Central Europe Rally.) I’ll add South America Dakar later.

The pic to the left was taken in Nema, Mali back in 2006. Two years later the organizers would relocate the Dakar Rally to South America. Currently the Rally is been run in Saudi Arabia

Perhaps one day it can come to the United States (It is apparently a lot harder than it sounds.)

Robby Gordon taking masks to new levels.

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.

Robby’s Uprising

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.

The Daytona Road Coarse is coming.

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 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.

Livestream Unicorns


I’ve made many pictures both in stills and video. Both are great visual mediums and great to understand. There is now a new skill set on the horizon.

Bang for the buck right now I would bet on live stream if you have something to sell.

In the coming months, I’ll be exploring different options, technology, software, camera gear, etc for extreme live stream broadcasting. Come visit livesteamunicorns.com

Red Bull does in fact give you wings.

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.

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 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.”
