Crash filled Xfinity Series Race

NASCAR: Alert Today Florida 300

Following the Kurt Busch NASCAR appeal across the street from the track, I had to hustle to get to the roof for the Alert Today Florida 300 Xfinity Race. The race for sure didn’t disappoint. Half way through the race, Daniel Suarez got turned sideway and hit Regan Smith (7), which caused Smith to barrel roll through the tri-oval. It was one of the best crash sequences I have shot.

The photos below are shot with a Canon 1DX, 600mm lens with a 1.4x converter for 840mm. I shot 52 straight frames on the camera, which out missing a beat. Of the 52 frames, NOT one of the frames was out of focus. After shooting that crash sequence, the 1DX puts the Nikon D4s to shame.
