NICA Richfield Race 2021
The Richfield NICA course is always great for photographs. The start, finish, and dynamic spots on the course are reasonably close to each other, which allows me to bounce around and get good shots. The Richfield course also has a one-mile section of motocross track in the course. The motocross track winds back and forth, allowing for multiple pictures of kids as they work their way through. This year I found myself not spending any time at the motocross track because the weather threw us some curveballs. During the Varsity race, there were lightning strikes close enough to make the race officials nervous. They cut the Varsity race short and delayed the next group, and shortened their race too. Things got back on track by the end of the day, but those shortened/delayed races eliminated some laps, which in turn eliminated some of my photo opportunities.
Despite the weather challenges, it was a good day with the camera. Here are some highlights from the day.
