I'v been doing motorsports web site's for around 20 years (give or take a few) and it's been pretty much fun all the way. Taking photos of race action at the NYS Fairgrounds on the "Moody" Mile will test a photographers endurance, and inasmuch as everythings a mile away my rear was always dragging at the end of the day, and that would always dig gouges out of the fun part. A month ago when my "Otto's Race Action" website came up for renewal I bailed out. It was time to move on! If your interested in viewing other racing images check out where you'll find photos from other race venues, I do Utica-Rome Speedway photos for the site.
    I'm continuing to maintain the "Wharton Valley website for as long as I'm able, and in the meantime will keep up with what our local racers are doing for your viewing pleasure along with local sports and other local goingson.
