Dusty racing goodness

Finally gonna post my pics from the AMA Flat Track race from last month.
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.


letting loose

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)

Shawn B

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.
The final 2 round of the 2010 AMA flat track will come back to Prescott, AZ
