The Stock Car Race
Stock car racing is a popular and widespread motor sport in the USA. Looking back in the history stock car racing was born in the Southern Appalachians and has a colorful past. The first formally organized competitions going back to the early 1930s. Each weekend, stock car races attract thousands of spectators. Desoto Speedway in Bradenton Florida is one of the popular race tracks at the west coast of the Sunshine State. The speedway was constructed in the early 1970s and is a 3/8-mile paved oval with 12 degree banking through the turns. Desoto Speedway is a perfect playground to document this largest spectator sport in the USA.
USA West Coast
From towering redwood forests in foggy Northern California to perfectly sun-kissed surf beaches in the south, this 'Golden State' alongside the Pacific simply begs to be explored. My trip started in San Francisco on highway number one along the natural wonders of Big Sur via Morro Bay to Los Angeles.
USA Grand Canyon South Rim
Humbling geological features, fascinating Native American history, forest-covered mountains, and a vast range of activities – its iconic name is The Grand Canyon State but Arizona has much more to offer the visitor than that undeniably grand canyon. My trip took me from Las Vegas via Grand Canyon South Rim to the scenic beauty Oak Creek Canyon and finally a short stop in the Yoshua Tree National Park.
