MotoGP at Indianapolis Motor Speedway
Elena Myers does a test ride on the Suzuki MotoGP bike on Thursday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
I am on vacation this week(end), but I am on a dream assignment. I convinced my editor to let me shoot MotoGP racing at the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana.
It's a great place to shoot racing with its rich history of car racing over the last hundred years.
I am rooming with my friend and one of the top MotoGP photographers Andrew Wheeler of AutoMotoPhoto.
Today was a bit slow, but AMA SuperSport star Elena Meyers tested a MotoGP bike made by the Suzuki factory team, so I got to photograph some track action.
Indianapolis is a nice, classic Americana town. We drive through these fantastic, green neighborhoods that are spreadout and green with nice, full trees everywhere. It's definitely a different culture than California, but enjoyable.
Good people in a good place.
I'll update throughout the weekend.
