    So once again its Nascar Race weekend in a near by city, Bristol TN. I was just wondering if there is a way to profit off of it using photography, or other easy to do things. :)

    I meant to look into this a couple of months ago, but forgot due to being to busy with other stuff.

    A couple of years ago I seen a person selling firewood out of the back of his truck, I wonder how much he made. :)

    If it was just a local dirt track or something, you could sell prints to the drivers, but I doubt NASCAR drivers will be interested in buying prints from 'some random guy in the crowd'...

    Not really sure what other options there might be...

    It doesn't sound like you're talking about going to the races and shooting with a long lens. Rather, setting up outside the venue to try and gather some tourist $$$'s.

    The guy selling firewood likely had a permit from the city. They want their cut too, particularly since NASCAR is a mere shadow of it's former self and the economy has been down.

    For business, my planning calender is 9 months in front of today. I'm planning today, what I want to do near the end of May 2011.

    When it comes to business, if you snooze, you lose. ;)

    Nope, no pictures of the actual nascar race, I dont want to spend the money to get inside for one. I was just hoping to cashin on the nascar fans. :) Perhaps in the future get a nascar dash or something and take pictures of them behind it and do a digital backdrop. : )

    It rained alot here lately, I think part of the campground is flooded, im sure that will make things more interesting there. Its a bit scarry to drive down that street when things are normal. :D
