I'm currently working on a masters in photojournalism out of Washington, D.C., and I also happen to have a massive passion for everything motorsports. Given that it just doesn't make sense financially to buy a race car, I make it my mission to put myself trackside wherever and whenever possible, and to ultimately make a living doing it. So after moving to D.C. late last month, I needed to sink my teeth into the local motorsports scene and start looking for potential semester projects and story ideas. Conveniently the next event just happened to be rallycross at Summit Point, West Virginia. I'm originally from Houston, where I've competed in Solo since I got my license, but we don't have much of a rallycross group out there (although they have since become more active, thanks Cam), and this was my first time to such an event. And it did not disappoint.

Bask in the sideways, muddy, and oft-boxer-engined magnificence.
