I went to Mile-High Nationals yesterday. I mostly shot video, which I will post once it is up on the site. Those cars are way too loud. While all these tough photographers on the side of the track bear the bone-crushing force of these cars like it's nothing, I literally get knocked over, snapped in half by the fiery vibrations speeding by me at 300 miles an hour. I don't know how you could ever get used to that, all the while breathing in clouds of toxic fumes of burning rubber and gasoline. Turns out I'm not the American I thought I was.
