The GLX Snocross season came to end with the running of the JBT Enterprises - Championship. It was a great season of nine races. The weather was near perfect, low 30's, cloudy to partly cloudy and no snow to interfere with the photography. For this event, I tried to change things up and brought my Sigma 100-300mm f4 lens. I attempted to obtain head shots while the sleds were racing. I had some minor success, but more failures than successes. It was a fun attempt. I also decided to take more pictures of the fans/competitors families, etc. I was attempting to show the family side to GLX Snocross. At this, I was successful and I will do more of this next season. I ended up with more than 1,200 images from the event. I was really happy with the images that were taken when the sun popped out. The contrast of the blue skies really makes all the colors really pop. Up to this point, every event that I had covered was cloudy with snow. This was a good change. The sled count was down slightly due to the ISOC Nationals U.S. Air Force Snocross event in Fargo, North Dakota. However, Jonathan Schwantz, #191 had a good day winning both Pro Lite races. Next weekend is the final Nationals race of the season at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wi., the Nielsens Enterprises Grand Finale. Due to the photography restrictions with the National event, I will not be attending. Now its time to start focusing on the start of auto racing.

This afternoon will be a time for watching the NASCAR Sprint Cup race from Las Vegas. I am really anxious to see if the changes NASCAR made to the Gen 6 car are actually going to work as advertised. If so, it should be an entertaining race with a lot of drama.
