One of the most recognized icons of the Speedway has to be Tom Carnegie. The iconic voice is as much a part of the speedway as the bricks themselves. His smile and his infamous voice are so full of life, that as a photographer, you cannot help but want to try and capture it. I was fortunate to catch Tom during an autograph session on Fast Friday, however it was not an autograph I was after, but a moment instead. Compositionally, as I peered through my viewfinder, I decided to crop Tom’s face in half to better focus on the wonderful character and characteristics Tom’s face offers. It is only one of a thousand wonderful shots IndyCar has to offer on Flickr now.
