  3. Gives a real feel for the race track. The first image really jumps out at me. You really have good tonal range on all of these shots.

    Great series, West!
    Excellent b&w's.
    The mood behind the scenes seems a lot more relaxed than I imagine it'd be on the track :)

    Thanks for looking. You won't see too many wasted moves with these guys, when it's time to GO they are a fine tuned machine.

    Great shots. I go to a few races a year to help out with tires, and work with guy you photographed in the last image of the first post. Great guy who’s been around the industry for a long time.

    Were you there shooting for a team, or just for yourself as a spectator/fan?

    You can copy and email him that photo if you want, it's not one that made my short list.
