Tyler Reddick, driver of the No. 8 Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen Chevrolet, Justin Haley, driver of the No. 77 FOE Chevrolet, Austin Dillon, driver of the No. 3 Bass Pro Shops/Tracker Off Road Chevrolet, Kurt Busch, driver of the No. 1 Monster Energy Chevrolet, Kevin Harvick, driver of the No. 4 Unibet Ford, Daniel Suarez, driver of the No. 99 CommScope Chevrolet, and Ross Chastain, driver of the No. 42 Clover Chevrolet, are involved in an on-track incident during the NASCAR Cup Series Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway on August 28, 2021, in Daytona Beach, Florida.

This photo was taken during the NASCAR Cup Series Coke Zero Sugar 400 at Daytona International Speedway (DIS). Daytona is one of those places where if you blink, you’ll miss it. Things happen really, really fast so you have to be locked in and focused. It’s a race everyone wants to win so they race really hard. Usually, towards the end of the race there’s what we call “the big one”. Someone makes a mistake and it causes a chain reaction through the entire field as seen in this photo. Getty Images always has one person on “overwatch” at DIS and they shoot with a long glass lens from the highest point in the track where you can see everything at once. Listening to the announcers on the radio helps with knowing what’s going on but it really just comes down to anticipation and being ready when it happens.

Amaury Escoto of Puebla battles for possesion with Bryan Olivera and Maximiliano Perg of Queretaro during the 7th round match between Puebla and Queretaro as part of the Torneo Grita Mexico A21 Liga MX at Cuauhtemoc Stadium on August 27, 2021, in Puebla, Mexico.

This was a very important match for Puebla because from losing most of their games at the start of the season, the coach was at risk of being fired. I decided to go with the Puebla attack both times since the team was going to press a lot. In the second half, I decided to experiment with shooting the camera at low shutter speeds, achieving a sweeping effect and that was how I captured this image of Amaury Escoto. In the end, Puebla won the match and the coach was not fired.
