    KJQF - 4/24/16: Concord Regional Airport / NASCAR Air Force

    Many of the NASCAR teams base their aircraft out of Concord Regional Airport, just north of Charlotte. They usually head out Thursday afternoon of race weekend, with some leaving early Sunday morning of race day, and they return after the race Sunday afternoon. As the days get longer, you can catch them arriving Sunday, especially from closer races, like the one in Richmond, VA this weekend.

    Stewart-Haas CRJ-200 - this is an old US Airways Express / Mesa jet.



    Another Stewart-Haas CRJ-200 - this one saw service with Independence Air.



    Hendrick Motorsports Embraer 145 - both made the rounds of regional airlines before ending up with Hendrick last summer.





    Richard Childress Racing Embraer 135



    Joe Gibbs Challenger



    A pair of Miami Air 737s - I think these charters have replaced the Roush 727s we used to see at CLT.

    I have to admit, I don't care much for the sport of nascar but I have always admired the "NASCAR Air Force."

    These are some lovely shots. I especially am drawn to the CR7! what a beaut! That low clean sunlight sure makes them glisten :) Thanks for sharing!

    Very nice light there. I find this is one of the best times of day for photography. N386CH is by far the sharpest looking livery. I thknk you have more light on the bottom of the plane than the top :)
