Five from the 500
This year’s 500 will be remembered for many things. It will be remembered not only as the hottest race on record and for Dario’s second win, but also for Danica’s charge to 6th after starting 23rd, and Alex Lloyd’s heroic battle to 4th.

Working in the pits on race day allows me to watch these stories unfold firsthand. Shooting Dale Coyne eagerly watching his crew at work, and Danica climbing from her car after an exhausting day, are among the shots I cherish most. These are the moments you feel fortunate to capture. I’ve been told… “If you see it through the viewfinder you’ve missed it.” Fortunately, for both these moments, my shutter got in the way and I did not miss the shot.
