    I'm out taking early morning images at Chicagoland and who shows up, Lightining McQueen! Disney and Legos are doing a promotion for the new Cars 3 movie that was just recently announced.

    Cool deal Terry! That car just looks amazing. I wonder how many pieces it took?

    Thanks. I can't wait to process them. During race weekend I don't get a chance to do any PP.

    Yes, it has been a great run. My DW and I have been working in media centers at two major race tracks for many years. We have developed some great friendships in the racing community

    It took 368,000. The blocks are glued together over a metal frame, it is hollow and weighs just under a ton.

    I know you will have some great pics from this Nascar weekend. Wish I was up there but they will be down in Homestead soon enough.

    I wish my job allowed for me to shoot all weekend, unfortunately the DW and I manage the infield media center desk. I only have limited time to shoot. Have fun at Homestead!

    Great Shots Terry!!! I can't wait for the end of the month to get to Dover for the weekend. I don't have the access like you do at Chicagoland, but I love my seats to get the cars coming around the 3rd and 4th corners.

    Thanks. It does help to be one of the track photographers! Have fun at Dover. I don't know if they meant to do it or not, but when they built Chicagoland they created some great angles to shoot from. We have a walkway at the top of the grandstand under the suites. From there the fence is not in the way and with a 300mm lens you can get great pit action.

    Thank you!
