I think this is my favorite photo from Daytona.  It's the front tire of the Project 1 Atlanta Yamaha R6, which Joey Pascarella had just ridden to the Daytona 200 win and his marked spot in Victory Circle.  I like to look for something a little different, particularly when confined to a staged setting like a podium ceremony.  Sometimes I get lucky too, as I did here with the strong reflected light on what would normally be the shaded underside of the tire.  So.  Gnarly textured used racing tire, 1st place "ribbon," interesting light and shadow.  It's all there.
