NASCAR Sprint Cup Practice and Qualifying Photos
This weekend we had the privilege of hanging out and photographing our favorite sport. We took photos all day at the Richmond International Raceway. We started the day at 9:00 AM with NASCAR Sprint Cup practice.
The morning was filled with excitement as cars took the field. They were in and out of the garage area. All morning the were tweaking to get the fastest car possible for the Federated Auto Parts 400.
The garages were hectic with crews adjusting their cars during practice. With all of the hectic-ness of the day, it makes it easy to stay busy photographing.
NASCAR Nationwide Wide Series Qualifying Photos
The afternoon at Richmond International Raceway was filled with qualifying. The first qualifying segment of the day belonged to the Nationwide Series. With 43 cars in the field, all would make the starting line up. Their qualifying would simply determine their starting position, not if someone would not make the field.
Kyle Busch, driving for JGR would end up on top taking the pole position for the Nationwide race. Landon Cassill of JD Motorsports would qualify 11th for the Nationwide Race. With top Sprint Cup drivers in the field, Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Larson and Matt Kenseth, they would give the Nationwide drivers a run for their money.
NASCAR Sprint Cup Qualifying Photos
As the qualifying segment began for the Sprint Cup drivers, we knew that there would be a frenzy on the racetrack. We also knew that with a frenzy their would be plenty of opportunity for great NASCAR photos. The reason we knew that all the drivers would head out immediately was because of cloud cover. In NASCAR, the cloud cover cools the track therefore the cars go faster. For qualifying you want the fastest time possible. The faster you are the better line up for the NASCAR race and the better pit selection you will have.
Brad Keselowski laid down the fastest lap time making him the pole sitter for the NASCAR Federated Auto Parts 500. Jeff Gordon will be sitting outside on row 1 with the second fasted qualifying time.
If you missed the Brickyard where Jeff Gordon took home the trophy, check out some of our NASCAR photos from the race.
NASCAR Nationwide Series VA529 College Savings Plan 250
The sun was setting at the Richmond International Raceway as the skydivers plunged from an airplane thousands of feet above. With the sun setting and a gorgeous sky we knew the the photos of the skydivers would be spectacular.
From green flag to checkered flag, we were in a night racing situation. We were photographing after sunset, late into the evening presents challenges. Fortunately if you have the right photography gear, fast lenses and fast cameras, you can capture some great NASCAR photos. With dim lighting and fast moving subjects the challenge can be intimidating. Knowing the sport certainly helps with getting key figures and key shots through the NASCAR race.
