and the #CocaCola600.
Men like Ryan Wilcox are far removed from that high-tech world, but they’re of the same blood. “A guy like me – I do everything,” Ryan told the photographer Ben Zucker (@saltysearabbit). “I prep the car for the race; I trailer the car there. If it needs anything when we get there, it’s all on me. It symbolizes a lot of hard work – there’s countless hours of tedious hand work, nothing machines can do: hours grinding, cutting, welding, just to make it the way I want. Most people see a car, I see hundreds of hours of work.” When Ryan gets a good result against more expensive cars, it sweetens the moment for him. “They have a full professional crew and all these spare parts,” he said. “Yeah, it feels awesome to outperform someone who’s got the upper hand on you.” Visit the link in our profile to see more of @saltysearabbit's images of rally cars, which race on secluded roads against the clock, not other drivers. #🏎️
