I had a pretty fun day today.

I was on the track at IMS to scout photography spots for an upcoming event:











Also, I saw Gene Simmons and Carmelo Anthony....apparently Anthony is an owner of an IRL team now, and Simmons is a partner in a marketing co that is involved with IRL. Interesting pair.

Yeah... the Kiss Gene Simmons. He was waiting in the main lobby with Carmelo Anthony as we were waiting for the track manager. It was kinda twilight-zone like.

We did a whole lap. Probably went about 100

I love that place, what event will you be photographing?


I got my 500 tickets in the mail about 2 weeks ago.

I can see my seats in one of your photos. I sit in the grandstand in turn 2 next to the luxury suits. SE VISTA

Indy IS awesome. I did the Richard Petty Driving Experience there 2 years ago. It was a very thrilling experience to actually pilot a race car around Indy at high speed. I would highly recommend it to anyone. The track is like no other.

I'll see your motor speedway, and match it with a Hockenheimring:



And I'll raise you one Nurburgring:
