The upcoming Transformers 3 movie, titled Transformers: Dark of the Moon, is coming out July 1st, 2011, starring Shia LaBeouf, Hugo Weaving, Josh Duhamel and a bunch others.

A Day At NASCAR Sprint Cup Practice at Infineon Raceway – A Pictorial Excursion

June 20, 2010

I headed out to Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA to hang out for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice sessions and check out the track.  After watching races at this track for years, I had the impression it was more expansive from the camera angles on TV, but to be honest, they pack a lot […]
