NASCAR at Dover

My little sister loves Jeff Gordon, so I always try to get a good stock shot of him for her. He was competitive in the race but never really had a chance to catch Jimmy Johnson.
Jimmy Johnson leads Chase points leader Mark Martin through the third turn.

Unfortunately Brian Vickers had a rough day and never had a chance to get near the lead. He finished 18th.

KR, Brian and Rob pose for a photo on the starting grid. We had a chance to talk with him about surfing and he said he'd longboarded a few times while on a trip to Costa Rica.

This year I was invited to come down to the NASCAR race at Dover to hang out with the Red Bull race team. It was a completely different experience than last year. I didn't have any assignments other than to shoot photos of Rob Kelly and Kevin Richards with Red Bull's driver Brian Vickers. Kevin won a bar tending contest Red Bull put on and the prize was a VIP day at a NASCAR race. I've been friends with them both for a while, so it was a lot of fun.
