Dover's pitroad is unique in that part of it does not have a cement wall, but a small metal armco, with just enough room for a camera to fit. This is the unique NASCAR pit stop angle you get as a result.

A nice off-angle shot in Victory Lane. These are often all or nothing. Either it's perfect, or it's unusable. This is perfect, right down to the Sunoco signs framing Kenseth's arms.

Extremely cool reflection on Kimi, who's almost cracking a smile. And that's his car reflected in the trophy too.
