It’s the most prestigious motorsports journalism award in the country, and no photographer has won it more times than Will Lester.
At a ceremony in Charlotte, North Carolina held during NASCAR’s annual Sprint Media Tour, Lester, a staff photographer for the San Bernardino Sun and Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, collected a Taxslayer.com Motorsports Journalism Award for his shot of Johnny Gray‘s exploding car at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway (pictured). From the Contra Costa Times write-up:
“His [four] awards by far beats everybody,” said freelance photographer David Griffin, a past winner. As in years past, the Indiana University School of Journalism judged the award entries.
