Love the great shots of the CDRA Team event (and LOTS of other races)~Check 'em out, guys and gals!
I want to say that over the last 5 years, I've watched Jim & Lee White hang in there through all sorts of weather and changes with track management, programs and schedules. As a small business they've faced the same economic circumstances as the rest of us and it's got to have been tough.
Race after race, season after season, Jim & his assistants have put a lot of effort into getting the "right shot" & photographing as many cars as possible. Plus, waiting out loooong days and nights to capture Winner's photos. The crew has spent countless hours uploading pictures, printing & all the other technical "stuff." The Whites have logged many miles on the road. Have set up & packed up the Cxpress trailer more times than even they can remember! Basically, they've done much that we've not thought about them doing. Many of us have just come to expect that chances are good that they'll be at the track to help record, what we hope is, our lucky day.
They've stuck out more than one race day when few orders were placed except for the FREE pictures they provide racers. And Cxpress has done most of this because they enjoy drag racing.
Many times I've seen Jim get almost as excited as the drivers when he greets in the Winner Circle. Or be tickled to catch an exciting pass. Lee has gone to great lengths to see that racers & fans get exactly what they want when they order, awarding those free photos and just being a friendly face. I've even seen both of 'em with dirty but still friendly faces! 'Cuz on the hot summer days, they've been as sweaty & grimey as the rest of us. Yep, they've sat through the rain delays & track clean-ups, fought the windy days, weathered the cold-just like the rest of us racing nuts.
So, here's a shout out to you, Jim & Lee I've enjoyed getting to know you. I'm grateful for all the memories you've captured. Your hard work & generousity is appreciated. And a giant THANK YOU for supporting the local racers. HOPE to see you next season.
...Now, I'm not certainly not going to be that person who says, "I sure wish I had a picture of that...," I'm ordering my racing pics!!
I've already ordered 4 pictures from them 2 from the Duck Drags and 2 more from the CDRA. I know Scott Gillean was helping out at both those events and he took some exceptional shots of my car. 1 of the Duck Drags pictures is from behind the car and you can see both front tires have air under them. I had that one made poster size Can't wait to add them to my collection.
Thanks Cxpress Photography
Thanks Kellie for saying what I wish I could have put into words
