You may have noticed we utilized Flickr this season. We used it as a way of reaching a new community and to bring a new perspective to our sport, through imagery. We featured all of the races from the 2010 season, a few Race to the Party’s, the 2012 announcement, the 2012 fan-designed chassis, and much, much more.

To date, we’ve uploaded 2,876 images – in one season – with over a million views from fans.
Flickr measures the popularity of images in four ways – Interesting, Views, Favorites and Comments. More on that later.
For this post, I wanted to look back on share some of my favorite images from Flickr in 2010 and reveal some of the amazing shots our photographers captured. In the next few weeks, I’ll be revealing the most popular images, according to Flickr. Sit tight.
Matt Becherer, the first-year president of Homestead-Miami Speedway, grew up following the greats of Indy car racing.
“Where a lot of other kids were going to ballgames with their dads, I was going to Indy car races,” he says. “I went to Indy a number of times, went to the Detroit Grand Prix a number of times and have been all over the place following the IndyCar Series. It was really my first love.
“When I was 8 or 9, that’s what I dreamed of doing when I grew up. It just so happened that I was able to get involved in the company that promotes IndyCar races.”
