It would have been my 4th year, but last year’s race was cancelled because of the stage that collapsed during a outdoor concert by Sugarland.
By the time that we got there Saturday noon, we still had a lot of cabling and equipment to setup and Fax out in order to be ready for the 3 o-clock practice runs.
As always, I was on camera 5, at the stage. It was my job to get the start of the race. To cover the race in front of the grandstand and to shoot the winners on the stage. We also had cameras at each of the 4 turns.
Though I’m not a big motorcycle race fan, the race is fun to watch and also very LOUD on the ears.
The real hard work though is when the race is all over with, and we had to roll up all of the cable that had been laid around the track. This year, it went pretty quickly. We were out of there by 1 am Sunday morning.
