10. We start off with a bit of humor. It's a cool classic Norton sidecar but that 'hold on for dear life' body language is pretty priceless.

9. Road America is such a big and varied circuit that there are still photos we haven't seen (or don't remember) from there, including this one. Clean background of trees, with no electrical poles, port-o-lets, trash cans, corner workers, or even guardrails to distract.

6. Another nice image from Road America. In many ways it's like a mini version of the Nürburgring - if shot properly.

4. Great moment from A.J. Allmendinger's completed road to recovery. In NASCAR, it's not always easy to get a "real" emotional reaction from drivers, both because the show is so controlled and formulated. First-time winners are usually good for a nice reaction or two.

3. Lovely sky over Trois-Rivières and a victorious Petter Solberg. We dig how his standard operating procedure for celebrating a win is to jump on the roof of his car and go nuts.
