Where
Auto Club Speedway in Fontana

It was the final day that Hillbank Motor Sports would be displaying its Superformance and Shelby cars at the Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, and Peeri arrived right around noon (“the worst light ever for shooting,” he says). Most of the models were already gone, but that ended up working in his favor. The parking lot and the track were almost empty. “This was the best time we could imagine to do a shoot, except for the sunlight.” And his improvisation paid off; he couldn’t be happier with the final shot. “The cars are amazing. There is a certain sense of speed in the picture, and you can feel the heat of the day,” he says. “Having that nice car family all in one photo was absolutely awesome.”
