Lost Drag Strips Book

A couple years ago, I wrote my first book, entitled Street Sleepers. It was published by CarTech Books and it’s widely available through many book stores, both online and in stores. You can click here to find out more about it. Soon after finishing the sleeper book, I decided to pitch a few more ideas to CarTech and see what might be the next book in my future. I knew that a book about abandoned drag strips would be interesting, from the angle of the reader and from my perspective.

Hot Rod Reunion 2012

June is undoubtedly my busiest time of the year, especially with the Great Race, which is a 13-day affair this year. Last year, the Great Race knocked me out of going to my favorite event, the NHRA Hot Rod Reunion in Bowling Green, Kentucky, so I wasn’t exactly pleased by that. However, the dates changed for the 2012 Great Race, so it opened up Father’s Day weekend and allowed my dad and I to head up to Bowling Green for a few days.

Practiced my pan shots from my favorite spot on the spectator side fence. Long burnouts are pretty common so it’s a great place to get cool, rolling burnout photos.

Show and Go Spring 2012!

Time sure does fly when you’re on the go 24/7! Seems like it was just a few weeks ago that I went down to Paradise Drag Strip for the Show and Go event, but it’s that time of year again. This year, the Show and Go came the day after the Strawberry Festival Cruise In, so it definitely made for a packed weekend for me.

Gotta love front engine dragsters! This one is super simple and very cool!
