Founder, Editor

Dusty founded Slipstream because of his undying love of motorsport. Growing up around local short track racing in Indiana, it wasn’t long before Formula 1 and the sports cars of Le Mans capture his attention. Today, Dusty’s focus is primarily on North American series such as the Verizon IndyCar Series, IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, and Pirelli World Challenge. For 2017, he hopes to follow global and national rally racing and dirt track racing more.

Photo Editor

Matt likes to take pretty pictures of pretty cars. That’s why we hired him. He’s active and loves the outdoors; he’s not afraid to get wet for that great shot. A big fan of Pearl Jam, Matt also plays guitar for his local church.

Katie is crazy. Crazy about coffee, crazy about Chihuahuas, and crazy about endurance racing. Katie has been to all of the NAEC, Daytona 2012, Sebring 2014, and more – yeah, she’s seen it all… Look for her Racing Line column to learn about her latest crazy racing adventures and why Porsche is so great. And whatever you do, don’t call Patrick Dempsey Dr. McDreamy.


[heading heading_text=”Jon Tenca”]


Jon runs Puckstopper Photography with his father, Bill. Working towards fire fighting full time, Jon has played Junior A Hockey in three different  countries, but the action and excitement of motor racing has kept him at the track. He’s been taking photos of fire fighting, hockey, and motorsports since his father handed him a camera a a young age and instructed, “Shoot as many photos as you want.”


[heading heading_text=”Pete Gorski”]

Pete Has been working as a photographer for over ten years, covering just about every motorsport out there. He can usually be seen roaming the wilds of Road America whenever there’s a race on. He’s pretty easy to spot with that trademark straw hat on, and the fact that he towers over the rest of us by about a foot.


[heading heading_text=”Bill Tenca”]

Vast and varied are Bill’s experiences, especially with fire fighting, photography, racing, and hockey. A member of Canon Professional Service and Conneticut Fire Photographers, Bill also serves as a photographer for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers and the Stamford Fire Department. Weekends spent at Lime Rock Park led to an interest in racing, even to the point of Bill serving as race official for some time. Bill enjoys the challenge of capturing the perfect shot, be it the eyes of a driver as he speeds by or the moment of impact of a hard crash.
