In this episode, I had the opportunity to get to know former motorcycle racer and burgeoning motorsports cinematographer Gray Pham. Gray started racing motorcycles when he was 12 years old and had a successful racing career through 2017, including competing in the MotoAmerica KTM RC 390 Cup Series. After making it through a string of bad luck, including having to recover from a major racing-related injury, Gray decided to hang up his leathers for a while and focus on starting his college career. During his first year of college, he also started playing around with shooting video at some local motocross tracks. His videos started to get a lot of attention and, in the Summer of 2018, a former racing sponsor approached Gray about shooting some video of motorcycle racer Ashton Yates on his Kawasaki Ninja 400. As the saying goes, the rest was history. Gray formed his own video production company, GP Industries, and decided to put college on hold for a little while so he can devote his full attention and energy to his passion for video creation and further honing his skills as a cinematographer and visual story teller. All of which aligns with Gray’s intense passion to help support, promote and grow the sport of motorcycle racing in America, and led to the creation of his motorcycle racing documentary series "America Racing".
