The day has finally come, the 56th running of the Daytona 500. After a week and a half of covering, practices, qualifying, Budweiser Duels, ARCA race, Camping World Truck Series, Xfinity Race it was time to shoot the Super Bowl of NASCAR. The Daytona 500!
I worked with three other photographers to cover the race, Peter Casey, Mike Dinovo and Jasen Vinlove. We arrived at the track at 8am, to avoid the traffic.
Due to lot happening the day before, we had to get out and make features around the track. Kyle Busch wouldn’t be racing in the Great American Race due to crashing in the Xfinity race and braking his leg. His brother Kurt, is suspended from NASCAR indefinitely.
I was assigned to cover storyline of Kurt and Kyle Busch. Showing, that the “Outlaw” won’t be racing and signs showing support of Kyle since he had surgery on his leg.
Please enjoy the photos.
