9. The car, not the photo, gets the nod. One of our all-time favorites.

7. We have to hand it to the Stock Car Brasil series: it's colorful. But it's also competitive, exciting and fun to watch.

6. You may think Valentino Rossi doing a wheelie after a race is common place (and you'd be right). But we've never seen such a nice shot of Vale.

1. There is so much weirdness going on in this photo that it had to be #1. From Lorenzo's body language (and standing on the tire wall) to the fire (?) burning in the fan area on the left, this image gets a 10 out of 10 for "uniqueness."
