TUSCC Winter Testing – Daytona – Wednesday

Not the sort of thing I was expecting when I got to the track; all the P/PC teams were loading up to go home.  IMSA/Continental decided that until they knew why the DP tires blew on Tuesday, the test was over for all but the GT cars and the DeltaWing.  Plus, the sky was grey […]


TUSCC Winter Testing at Sebring – Sunday

HEY!  The sun came out. We had beautiful morning light to shoot in.  Now of course we have that un-lovely overhead Noonday sun, but there are also some helpful white puffy clouds to help out.  Thankfully, none of them are near the sun, I hate the light-dark-light passing of the clouds, drives me bonkers. My […]


TUSCC Winter Testing – Sebring – Saturday

So far, so good.  Very tiny amount of rain around 8AM and then dry.  Sun keeps peeking through the steel grey clouds.  Hopefully the afternoon session will be dry as well since most of the cars seem to be taking a run on Sunday attitude; only 6 were on track earlier today.  The rest are […]


#TheFuture

Well, its dark and raining and I am at Sebring in November. Feels strange to be here now. Normally Winter testing would be happening here around the same weekend as the Super Bowl.  My problem is I am barely dry from the rain at Petit Le Mans and now it looks like I get to […]

The 50th Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona

Um Houston….we might have a problem. The grid walk at the 24 Hours of Daytona last year resembled the Grand Prix of Utah, not a whole lot of people, a couple of thousand, maybe. This year, the walk was wall to wall people.  People on the track, people on the grid, people on the grass…..thousands […]


Waiting for morning Rolex practice

Somehow I doubt the sun will have much impact in this morning’s shooting.  Hope the clouds go away for the Conti race this afternoon Please follow and like us:


Prepping for the Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona 2012

The time between Christmas and New Year’s is a bit weird. Its like non time. Things happen, but it seems like they don’t have to. We are sitting in Arizona wondering why its so cold here since we came this way on purpose.  Its been warmer in our old stomping grounds of Athens, GA.  Bah, […]


2011 Year in the Pits Slideshow Review

I pulled some of my favorite shots from my work in the pits during the 2011 sports car season.  Some I chose because of the action or the expression, other are simply visually appealing to me. I hope you like them as well.  Enjoy. -Darren 2011 Year In The Pits – Images by Darren Pierson […]


Rolex 24 At Daytona 2011

Shooting the Rolex 24 was fun. I didn’t expect it to be. Horror stories abound concerning the Daytona security and staff.  Maybe I was lucky, but everyone I had to deal with, from the lady who gave me my credentials, to the guy at Gate 40 who waved goodbye as we left on Sunday, was […]


Rolex 24 2011 Qualification and Night Practice

Did Turner Motorsport bribe the ferris wheel owners to equip with their colors this year?  I think they might have, but I will let you decide.  I suppose you noticed that I led with a night image when the title clearly states: Quali 1st, Nighttime 2nd.  Sorry, I like the Turner picture better than any […]


Rolex 24 Field Group Photo Day

We seem to be at Daytona Beach. Weird after living so close to it for the last 12 years that we have never made it down here. Wednesday is a day of very little activity, the haulers bring the cars in and later the entrants have a group shot out on the Pit-In section of […]
