In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
There are distinguishing features to the tracks on the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship circuit which have been showcased for years in photos. Take the multi-story starter building at Spring Creek, which lets shooters get above the action at the start of the moto for an angle unlike any other in the series. The long and perfectly prepped lane leads riders to the first-turn with a picturesque green hillside off in the distance. No photographers trip to the Minnesota track is complete without a few frames from this spot.
