USAFA Racing Team

This fall I was delighted to be invited to speak to the United States Air Force Racing Team at the Colorado Springs Academy. I brought a presentation that gave the cadets a serious historical to present day look at land speed racing using my own photography, as well as a number of evocative vintage views going back to the 1st race in 1914.  The idea was to expose them to a segment of motorsports where free-thinking gives rise to fresh ideas and new ways to solve problems — all tempered with unshakeable sense of purpose where the power of a …
