This is a portrait series about the people at the Bethel Motor Speedway, with a focus on the worker behind the scenes of the race track. I found a close community of Motorsports enthusiasts, where everyone is very passionated about what they are doing. It seemed that everyone were living for the races at the weekend. I was happy to spend the last day of the season at the track to capture the spirit and the true engine behind the very loud race cars.
