9. A second victory for Dale Jr. This is always breaking news because of how incredibly popular he is, winning or not. Plus Pocono has a unique set up for their Victory Lane. It always makes a nice picture.

7. Great rally atmosphere in this image. Jumping car, TV helicopter, makeshift viewing stand for fans. It's all there. Bonus points for the guy with an iPad.
