a couple years ago i was fortunate enough to get hooked up with the CHASE RACING FAMILY and offered to chase for them during the 40th in 2007. the entire trip far exceeded my expectations and ended up being one of the best things ive ever done in my life!
great race - great family - great friends!!:)

so, just for fun - i decided to bring along a couple cameras and shoot a little film for the team.

i actually finished the film in 2008 (complete with dvd box cover & grfx!!) but thanks to the complications of life, work and relationships - i only recently was able to post it up on my site (which itself is STILL under construction!) for the rest of the world to scrutinize.

i made the film on my own dime in my free time - and althoiugh i couldve made it a full length movie...i decided a 15 min short was more fun to watch...besides - nothing will top D2G...(and anyone who knows anything about editing knows, its never really done anyway!):p

i hope you enjoy it.

thanks a bunch - i really appreciate that!:)

and since i 'borrowed' a lot of expensive music - they are not for sale...but that simply means you can have one for FREE!!:D

just send me an S.A.S.E. and i'll send it right back!

next chance i get i'll post a link to the gallery of stills too!

thanks again

If that doesn't make you want to head to Baja for the 1000, then I don't know what will!

Best thing posted on RDC in a long time!
