Sunday was the day they ran this year’s Daytona 500 race down in Florida. Fifteen or so years ago I might have been in Daytona Beach covering the race from the pits and the infield turns. It was fun to do, but that business went away. I did get to shoot some motorsports in Grays Chapel, however. Neighbor Brandon McMasters and his friends (Mike Routh above) got together on his dad’s farm and did a little rock crawling. Basically, take a four wheel drive vehicle with big tires for clearance and a very modified suspension and drive up a very big rock without destroying the truck or turning over. Gentlemen, start your engines.
