Wayne Trump Jr.
My name is Wayne Trump Jr., from Hanover, PA. I grew up surrounded by racing. I am lucky enough to say I have been to Penn National and Silver Spring before they both shut down. I have been attending Lincoln and Trail-Way fairly consistently since I was old enough to attend.
My passion for capturing memories at the races began in 2014. I started bringing a cheap digital camera along and taking photos. I highly enjoyed whenever a track would have camera and autograph nights. Eventually I saw a post on Facebook that PAPosseRacing.com was looking for someone to record video highlights at Lincoln and Trail-Way. With encouragement from my close friends, I jumped on the chance for the 2016 season. Throughout the year I started taking photos when I wasn't filming and the passion grew. So I created the Facebook page Wayne Trump Jr. Photography and Film to share what I captured.
Near the end of the 2016 season, I met Dave Zortman. Dave produced dvds for Susquehanna Speedway. He was looking for a second videographer to shoot videos for Speed Kings. He watched some of my work and took me under his wing. I learned so much from him and unfortunately my time with him was cut short. Dave passed away at the beginning of the 2017 race season while battling leukemia. After losing Dave I decided to create WayTru Productions and produce highlight videos on Youtube. I currently film highlights at Trail-Way Speedway and take photos wherever the dirt flies.
My name is Ashlee Leister, from Port Royal, PA. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication in 2013. My first ever real exposure to dirt track racing was when I got asked to attend Port Royal Speedway from a local 410 driver - Rick Lafferty. I went the first night and started helping little bits and pieces on the car.
After that night, it became a weekend affair with going to Williams Grove Speedway on Friday nights. Even when I didn't attend, he usually stopped in at the local Italian pizza place that I worked at to tell me how he did. During these first couple of years, I developed the love for the sport and the like to different drivers- Justin Henderson, Todd Shaffer, and Cody Darrah just to name a few.
Over the years, I have met my now fiance at Port Royal Speedway. He currently helps Dave Blaney out when he comes to PA. I started taking photos with my phone for a project for him but I didn't like how they were turning out. I went out on limb and brought a Canon TI5. The first race that I decide to shot with no practice was the Lou Blaney Memorial at Sharon Speedway in July 2017.
Ever since that day, the camera is usually in my hand at the track or just out in the country. I definitely have fallen in love with photography from that very first day!

Hello, my name is Tim Basehore and I am from Palmyra, Pa. I have enjoyed racing and photography my whole life. After life getting in the way, I returned back to the dirt tracks in 2013 and decided to combine racing and photography. I never imagined getting as involved as I have with so many great people as a result of this decision. I feel through my photography, I can give something back to this sport and the tracks, drivers, and fans that make it special. You may have seen my photos in the past under "On The Hammer Photos".
For the 2018 season I was asked by friend and fellow photographer, Garry Ferguson, to assist him with his duties as track photographer at Trail-Way Speedway. This was quite an adjustment as I had never been to this track before and knew basically none of the drivers, officials, etc. I can't say enough about all the great people I have met at this track and how welcomed I have been made to feel there. For the 2019 season, I am returning to Trail-Way with Garry, and this year as a member of WRT Speedwerx. We are looking forward to another great year of shooting at "The Farm". As time allows I will be attending as many different tracks as I can throughout the season.
For the 2019 season Garry Ferguson and myself also have created Elite Racing Imagery, and hope to better serve our customers. 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year and I hope you will follow along and enjoy many great captures from a bunch of tracks and a bunch of different racing disciplines. There's a lot more to The Central Pa. racing scene than 410's, and I hope to represent all these classes through my images.
If you need hero cards or any special designs for your race teams etc., don't be afraid to reach out to Garry or myself, we are here to help teams market themselves in any way we can. And drivers.......let's have a safe 2019 and always stay "On The Hammer".

My name is Garry Ferguson, and I’m from Waynesboro, PA. I’ve been around racing my entire life. I’ve wrenched on late models early on, then moved to wrenching on sprint cars for many years.
Three years ago, I decided to switch things up and look at racing through a camera lens and I’ve been hooked ever since. I obtained my first media credential though my local newspaper, and I’m currently a photographer for WRT Speedwerx, AARN, and I’m a co-owner of Elite Racing Imagery with Tim Basehore.
For the past 3 years, Tim Basehore and I have been the track photographers for Trail-Way Speedway in Hanover, PA. I shoot locally at area race tracks and travel to many larger shows like the World Finals in Charlotte, and The Kings Royal at Eldora Speedway. Tim and I design and sell hero/cards and sponsor/advertisement cards. I look forward to meeting as many drivers and fans as I can. “Keep your foot in it and enjoy every lap!!”
