Since attended his first NASCAR race at Darlington Raceway at the age of ten, racing was Rusty’s primary sport of choice. As his interest in photography and racing were a natural fit, he began shooting local racing. His first paid assignment was in 1983 at Darlington for the Southern 500.
He is a well known figure in the world of NASCAR and in the motorsport photographic community.
Rusty finds the engineering side of NASCAR fascinating, as well as the many relationships with the drivers and crew members. He is in his element working on pit road during the races.
