NASCAR’s Brickyard 400 is held annually at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Here are the famous bricks.
The Brickyard 400 trophy is one special trophy in all of motorsports.
When you win, they place your name on a ‘Brick’.
Official Pace Car.
A throwback photo from Winston Cup of the Officials getting ready for Race Day.
On Race Day morning, the cars are inspected prior to racing.
NASCAR Officials check everything.
These next photos are of my Pit Tours.
I enjoyed educating Race Fans.
They learned a lot from me and enjoyed the race better because of it.
I conducted lots of research to build up my knowledge of the sport.
I met people from all over the country while working in NASCAR.
This photo was taken from our suite.
Jeff Gordon taking his ride around the track.
Dale Jr. doing the same thing.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway is one of the best places to see a race.
The track gets crowded before the race begins.
It’s a beautiful sight to see all of the colorful race cars all lined up.
The famous bricks again.
I never bored of going to the races.
The Pit Crews line up also.
The famous Pagoda.
There’s no other track like IMS.
We had a great suite for viewing the race and getting photos.
The Pit Crews are always exciting to watch.
A ‘Mechanical Ballet’.
I have a whole post on Pit Crews.
When you win, you get to do a ‘Burn Out’.
The fans love it.
Kevin Harvick’s autograph.
After you tear up your car doing burn outs, you head to Victory lane.
The great thing about the Brickyard is that the whole team gets to kiss the bricks. I think I’m the only photographer to get shots from this vantage point.
Great shot, if I do say so myself, lol.
The inaugural Brickyard 400 race was held in 1994, and the 400 was the first race other than the Indianapolis 500 to be held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway since 1916.
This photo should have been in a magazine.
I wonder what that rubber tastes like.
After the kissing comes the climbing.
The fans love this and get some great photos.
Later, the team assembles for the Victory Lane photos.
Indy has one of the most unique Victory Lanes of any track.
Great day to be Kevin Harvick.
Kendra and I at the race.
I always loved the Brickyard 400 and I got a ring for one of Gordon’s victories.
If you ever get to the Brickyard 400, you gotta go by the campground near the track. You’ll see some funny sights for sure.
