2016 Rolex 24 at Daytona

It’s fitting that the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship starts out with the two longest races on its calendar, the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 12 Hours of Sebring. If you can make it through those two weeks, you might just survive working the rest of the season. For us, the race doesn’t start on Saturday, […]


2016 Roar Before The 24

Blogging is hard.  Between shooting, editing and sending files to clients, keeping up with social networking updates, chasing new work…….A week after the event and you sit down to try to write about what happened. You sit there and wonder, what happened that was different or interesting? Did I try anything new? Did I figure anything […]

Why is it so hard to type a few words detailing what went on?  I can talk all day about it, but actually type something? Please follow and like us:


2015 Roar Before The 24

We used to travel to the Rolex 24 each year as a tune up for the start of the ALMS season. Since ALMS testing was conducted at Sebring, we never had the need to shoot the Roar. I would see posts on FaceBook and Twitter from colleagues who were there for GrandAM and wonder what […]

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 […]
