    Thanks guys.

    Randy I dont know about other tracks ,but at Richmond you can buy a pit pass that will allow you access to the pits ,you just cant go to the platforms to shoot unless you have credentials.

    Dave its always a good time shooting the IRL , the race itself wasnt very exciting this time though , not many lead changes.

    I didnt know I was gonna go till the last minute. We had a big job with citgo racing and as I was laying down for a nap I got a call from one of my employees and he asked if I wanted to go to the race . He got me a ticket & pit pass from the citgo group.So I jumped up packed real quick and took off.

    Really great series Biggs, action is nice, but so is the behind-the-scenes stuff too. I really like the facial close-ups.

    Thanks Gale,Frits,Shekar,& Brian I appreciate the comments.

    Frank , Thanks . I enjoy shooting the behind the scenes as much if not more than the actual race.

    Thanks Jeff. I didnt know who she was till after the fact. Someone asked me if I got any shots of Ashley Judd ,and said I dunno ,whats she look like ? Once the said she hada purple dress on I knew exactly who he was talking about.

    the hat is what caught my eye.
     
  12. As someone who used to attend a lot of the Indy race events as a guest of Bobby Unser, you've done a superb job of capturing the "look and feel" of the garage and pit area before a race. Beautifully executed pics. Thanks.

    Thanks Harry. It really is fun just before the race.


    Thanks Anthony , I had a pit pass ,but No credentials. But really the only two areas I was not allowed was on the shooting platforms (which is ashamed because they have lights installed at those that really help the photographers) , and for some reason one end of the pit row.

    So I was able to move around pretty freely with a pit pass.
     
  14. Very well done, thanks for showing.
