I recently joined the team over at Tribute Racing as a photographer. I will be heading to Forth Worth, TX this weekend to photograph the NASCAR races. Friday night kicks off the 3 days of competition, starting with the NASCAR Camping Truck Series. Green flag drops at 7:30pm for the NCWTS Winstar World Casino & Resort 350 (147 laps totaling 220.5 miles). You can watch live on Fox Sports 1 or listen on the radio locally at 105.3FM The Fan.
At 2:30pm Saturday, the NASCAR Xfinity Series race begins. The NXS O'Reilly Auto Parts Challenge consists of 200 laps, for a total of 300 miles. This race will be broadcast on NBC and local radio 105.3FM The Fan.
And finally, Sunday at 1:00pm, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series hits the track for the NSCS AAA Texas 500. This race will be 334 laps equal to 501 miles. You can catch video broadcast via NBC and local NewsRadio 1080 KRLD AM
Between all the racing, there is of course practice and qualifying. Teams will use these opportunities to dial in their vehicles in hopes of having the fastest car come race time.
I am very excited to be attending this weekend, as it will not only be my 1st NASCAR event to photograph, but also my very 1st NASCAR race to attend. I have watched a few races from time to time on TV, but never actually stepped foot into a race arena with such prestige and history. I can only imagine what the weekend has in store for me.
