Summit Point Raceway

VIntage Racer Group Turkey Bowl 2015

Not only do I enjoy shooting landscapes and nature one of my other favorite subjects to photograph is auto racing.  Ever since I was a kid my parents would take us up to Summit Point Raceway a few weekends every summer to watch the SCCA races.  I actually got my first experience shooting photographs at these events using a Pentax film camera and not having much idea what I was doing.  My father did teach me about focusing and panning but at the time it all seemed so daunting.  

Yesterday I was back up at Summit Point Raceway in West Virginia enjoying the smell of the rubber and exhaust, sounds of the engines all these things instantly bring back great memories from my childhood.  The Vintage Racer Group was having it's annual Turkey Bowl race which gives me a chance to practice my skills at panning and action/sports photography.  I created a short slide show video of some of the images from the race  and posted it below, enjoy.
