Nestled between two mountain ranges and in the high desert, Miller Motorsports Park provides one of the most striking and beautiful backdrops to any race course I’ve ever attended. The fact that both World Superbike and AMA Pro Racing race during the same weekend makes the BigM weekend, as the locals call it, increasingly special, and accordingly our access to the course and riders this past Memorial Day was especially gracious.

While I like to let our resident Nikon-hauler Scott Jones do the hard work behind the lens, every now and then my camera catches a photo in focus, so I thought I’d share some of those rare occasions during my first time in the World Superbike paddock. Enjoy them after the jump.

    Very nice pics you have there,
    I think it’s good if you have a site that post your photography collections.
    Keep on the good work!

    Checa was a beast this last weekend. It looked like other guys were just warming up while he was actually racing.

    Shame you don’t have a pic of the water creek running across the racing line ….. because I would ask you what was all that about???

    Strangely nobody (Internet) nor TV has talked about it much, accept for that it is dangerous … doh! what I don’t understand is that in this day and age it was impossible to makes sure that the water doesn’t make it on the track ….

    Also, where were all the spectators. it looked like a moon …. yes with a beautiful background. Wonder how much money the organizers can possibly make or lose in such an event.

    Come on, Guy, there’s always the option of not reading the post. Or unsubscribing to the rss feed if A&R is not your bag. No one is holding a gun to your head, forcing you to click your mouse.
