NASCAR Preseason 2011: We Made A Video

Look, there's a reason I'm a writer and not a camera guy – being a videographer is way harder than it looks.

The same can be said for editing the video once you have it.

But despite my lack of skills, I decided to make a short video with scenes from the 2011 NASCAR Preseason events. Using a FlipVideo camera, I recorded some shots from the recently completed NASCAR Sprint Media Tour as well as Daytona preseason testing.

As some of you know, taking video at a racetrack is normally forbidden. Turner (aka NASCAR.com) has an exclusive online video deal with NASCAR, so no one is permitted to record footage at a track during race weekend and post it online.

Testing didn't fall under that policy, though, so this was a rare opportunity. Below is the amateurish video which I spiced up by including the track "Faster Ride" from Cartel, one of my favorite bands.
