Here are a few shots that I liked from this year - I wouldn't call them my "best' per se but they show a good variety of what I was able to get this year. I wasn't able to go trackside as often as I have in past years, but I made the most of the chances that I did get. All of the photos here were taken in various parts of Pennsylvania, except for the last two which are from New York.
