10. Racing action at Michigan International Speedway, right up against the fence, with cars going by at nearly 200mph. Bonus points for using ominous clouds to help give this image a 'mood.'

8. Confetti falls all over race winner Josef Newgarden. This shot can be hell on photographers as the confetti can play with the autofocus.

5. It's difficult to stress how difficult this image is to get right. What you can't see: dozens of photographers/team members/PR reps/fans behind this photographer. Getting a clean shot of Harvick climbing into the car means strategic placement, good timing and lots of experience.

3. Like a tunnel, the wide angle on this image uses the curvature of the fencing, as well as the distortion of the start/finish line to frame the start. Great capture.

1. What a moment. Impressive angle, fantastic timing to catch the car with good separation between sky and fans in the background. And that helicopter...so close...This has to be one of the top 10 photos of the year so far.
