Budds Creek August 20th, 2022, the battle continues across the board. Starting with the 450’s, Eli Tomac who landed a second place podium, took back the red plate and now leads by 1 point over Chase Sexton, who just missed the podium finishing 4th overall. Jason Anderson stayed consistent going 2-2 in both motos resulting in a first place finish overall on the day! And to round off the 450 podium Ken Roczen finished third. In the 250 class R.J. Hampshire took the overall on the day finishing 1-2. Following Hampshire was Jo Shimoda, and then Jett Lawrence, who is still holding off Shimoda who has now crept into second place passing Hunter Lawrence in the overall point standings.
Down in a valley by the time mid-day hit it was hot and humid, literal sweat dipped into my viewfinder. Nonetheless it was a beautiful track, the trees, the dirt, the people, A+. Having trees track side always makes for great shadows in the morning and seeing those photos gets me fired up.
First practices with very smooth as I was getting a feel for the track knocking out some shots I know I needed to get. From camera to upload to edit the photos were turning out great. Motos 1 and 2 both went super smooth, and then the vast editing process came and I was stuck behind a computer for hours.
This week’s monster girl shoot was a lot less of a walk. We ended up going a shoot right in front of the trailer door. The AC felt amazing inside of the trailer.
Next week will be in Crawfordsville, Indiana at Ironman Raceway. Should be a great one to watch and photograph, with some new riders making their pro debut and witnessing the battle between Chase and Eli.
Thanks for reading, keep on the lookout for new photos and posts to come!
