NASCAR Racing, #1, Talladega, Alabama

This is my top-selling NASCAR mural image from Taladega Super Speedway. Cars are doing a little bit over 200mph. I was fortunate enough during this race to make a connection with the NBC TV GPS timing people and I was able to call the TV compound and get an actual, acurate read out of how fast the cars were going. That is a big help for me, as the result of knowing the exact speed is a much sharper image. I am able to adjust the camera's RPMS to the distance and exact speed of the cars. I used to just guess.
Today I am able to get the exact speed read outs of the cars through NASCAR's "Pit Command" website as I am actually standing on the side of the track shooting the race.
