I was extremely delighted to be covering the first NASCAR Cup Series race on dirt because 1970. Fortunately, I had terrific cover for myself and my equipment to shoot trackside for the weekend. With dry conditions and 4 practices that afternoon, the continuous track time caused a significant dust bowl within Bristol Motor Speedway. I would envision it was comparable to remaining in a continuous sandstorm, however you just needed to sort of stand there and welcome it. The mix of the dust and warm sun made for a distinct setting that hasnt been seen in the series for 51 years. Capturing images like this and being able to record a little bit of history at the exact same time deserved all of the post cleanup.

The snow was getting harder as the pitch count went up. In this moment, Cabrera took this pitch to ideal field for a first-inning two-run home run. The snow stopped right after the first inning and the Tigers went on to win 3-2 versus the Cleveland Indians.
