10. The Fastest Show on Earth: Eddie Gossage, Texas Motor Speedway's master marketer, tried to keep his deteriorating health a secret. Until his hair started falling out.

Over here at Observer HQ, it was a year of street cars, Texas craft liquors, Pomplamoose and NASCAR, eight-tracks and fracking. And, you know, other things.

Below, we present them all--cover by cover (with designs by our Art Director Alexander Flores).
