Man I got loads, but I'll do a few every post I make in this:

2008 Formula 1 Season Finale at Brazil, Lewis Hamilton wins the title in a nail-biting last lap.
Dale Jr finally breaking his long winless streak at Michigan in 2012.
Dan Wheldon winning the 2011 Indy 500 after J.R. Hildebrand crashes in turn 4 on the last lap.
2011 Aaron's 499, the record for the closest finish in NASCAR was equaled by Jimmie Johnson edging out Clint Bowyer (I was there too Smile )
Jenson Button's amazing streak of 10 podium finishes in the 2004 Formula 1 Season.

I started watching Nascar in 2005 (1st race was Dale Jr winning that I recall) (So, Chicago 2005) so here's my top 5
5. That 2012 Talladega finish (nuff said)
4. 2011 Aaron's 499 (Closest Finish Ever)
3. 2011 Ford 400 (Best Championship Finish)
2. 2007 Daytona 500 (Yeah...)
1. 2008 LifeLock 400 (Dale Jr won 7 days before my birthday 6/20)
Maybe these aren't the best but i can't remember right now

Robert Kubica's entire 2010 season. If he was in a Ferrari, Red Bull, or McLaren, he would've walked the title that year.
