989 studios & The Jet @ IMI Complex

This past weekend I was invited to shoot with good friend Zach Zygowicz from 989 studios out at the IMI Motorsports complex with Jonathan Underwood aka The Jet.  The track was packed, everyone was having a great time even with the track conditions not at ideal standards. We managed to get some shots before the day was out. Watching these guys ride is truly impressive, these guys ride fast and hard. So much fun shooting with them. Check out some shots below.

With all sports there are risks one takes to participate, In the world of action sports the consequences are even higher. These athletes take impact after impact. A failure in these sports can result in life and death situations in a split second. Its not like missing a free throw in basketball, or striking out in baseball. When you make a mistake at the highest level you are putting your life at risk. No matter how “good” you are at any given sport, at some point a major accident is bound to happen. Unfortunately, while we were focusing on some sections with Jet, he took a bad fall which landed him in the hospital. He broke 3 ribs, collapsed both lungs while puncturing one, broken several neck bones, back bones, and his collar bone shattered into 3 pieces. He was just released from the hospital the other day and is back home recovering. We wish him best and hope he heals quick.

    Love the pictures, joe! Still so sorry to hear and read about your friend, but I am so happy he is back home from the hospital. What a horrible fall that was. Praying for a safe recovery for him. Proud of you, Joe!
