Photos From Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500

leave a comment »

Here’s a slideshow of photos at thatsracing.com from many different photographer’s including some of mine from Sunday’s Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500. The first photo in the slideshow is mine and there are a few others later in the show.

Here’s some of mine on ESPN , The Washington Post (click to the third photo), and check out the first photo in this group. It was shot by AP Photographer Steve Helber as Jimmie Johnson crossed the finish line to win the race. Steve was standing only about five to eight feet away from the car behind a doorway leading onto the track and caught Johnson hitting the finishline at probably 110 mph. You can also see Johnson on the TV tower and Martinsville on the inside wall. It’s really an amazing and difficult shot to nail the car on the finishline that close to a car running at that speed.

The Kroger 250 NASCAR Camping World Series race was at noon today at Martinsville Speedway. The race was rained out on Saturday and that means fans had to take a day off to attend. It was a great crowd considering it was Monday and they were treated to a fun race.

The first photo is of Harvick in Victory Lane. The second was his burnout after winning. The third is a fan cheering on his driver on the frontstretch. The last photo is in the tunnel underneath the track. All of the photos were shot with the Olympus E-3.

Fans wave at the end of the National Anthem. This gives you an idea of where I shot the race from. I was on the top row in turn one.

Jimmie Johnson in Martinsville Speedway’s Goody’s Fast Pain Relief 500 Victory Lane. If I could show you a larger photo, you could play Where’s Waldo. It was a great race as it always is.

I think I have failed to mention in previous posts that the photos are from Litchfield Beach, S.C. 

The weather was a little cool so we spent a lot of time reading, working puzzles and of course eating. All of the photos were shot with a Konica T3 and black & white film.
