Been here in Phoenix for only 5 months and I already got to see my first flat track race in my life. It was on a mile track too, so the bikes were really thumpin.
It was windy and pretty chilly, the track was very dry and altitude was an added factor in Prescott, AZ. ...and i got star struck when i saw Chris Carr (fastest man on two wheels) , since my dad and i have been doing a bit of land speed trials @ the Texas Mile
Brought my digital Canon Rebel w/ telephoto lense and my new super tiny Diana Mini 35mm camera.
Shawn Baer riding the Triumph
I read all about the Kaw Team, so it was great to see this machine tearing around the mile track
This is a very beautiful twin from a Triumph street tracker on display
tons of wicked bikes
lots of different bike giving the XR bikes a good race (not Joe Kopp's bike)
the Halbert pits
This killer bike is Matt Weidam's BMW/Rotax f-tracker (after the main)
Nicole Cheza (featured in Sideburn mag's 5th issue)
and the winner of the weekend, Joe Kopp
It was an insanely close race between Kopp and Sam Halbert.
I was posted up at the last corner so i didn't get to see the photo finish
Heres a photo taken by my buddy, John (i'm in the corner shooting)

Those are just a slice of the massive amount of photos taken.
