Crosstown Traffic

While Manhattan prepares this week for the annual NASCAR Awards banquet and the parade of Cup cars past Times Square, across the East River a shaved-head, goatee and tattoo bearing photographer named David Lindsey Wade is busily shooting the Team Red Bull drivers and cars for 2007. To keep things interesting, the No. 83 and No. 84 Camry showcars didn't get built until late last week and didn't get decaled until Monday down in Carolina. Then the Puma driver suits didn't arrive to Manhattan from Italy until Tuesday at 3 pm, thanks to a UPS mix-up. Murphy's Law notwithstanding, the first day of the shoot down in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn went as planned. A Toyota documentary crew were there to capture it. The highlight of the day was the No. 83 spinning donuts on the cobblestone streets while puzzled New Yorkers (including two NYPD Movie TV Unit officers) looked on in amusement as the car narrowily missed street poles, parked cars, onlookers and the photographer. According to the documentary director, that definitely made the final cut for the show that will air next February.
