Hello, and thanks for visiting my web site.
My name is Rick Lane and I live in west-central Ohio, close to many short tracks and the bigger speedways. I have been photographing race cars for 40+ years.
It all started for me in 1961 when our Indiana raised basketball coach took his 8th grade team (all 7 of us) to the Indianapolis 500.
After attending the race, I was hooked on auto racing for LIFE and have been to every 500 mile race since.
Purchased my first camera in ’68 and have progressed from darkroom & film to the digital era.
I have been fortunate to be a credentialed stringer photographer for the Indianapolis Star since 1973 and a member of the Indianapolis 500 Oldtimers Club.
Since 2004, I have been on the photo staff at Chicagoland Speedway and was Track Photographer/Photo Coordinator from 2010 through 2017.
But my real love is photographing the sprint cars and midgets that race on the local dirt tracks.
Many Saturday nights are spent at Lawrenceburg Speedway; one of the country's premier dirt tracks.
If there is any racing photography requirement you need, please contact me and I will gladly assist.
Again, thanks for viewing.
