2008 CHAMPS CROWNED AT ANNUAL AWARDS BANQUET
We gathered at the Empire Room to honor the 2008 ESTA National Parts Peddler E.T. Series points champions, as well as the Special Award winners. The racers split up over $15,000 in prize money, as well as some very nice custom engraved plaques to remember their accomplishments of this season. Here is a brief recap of the evening’s award winners.
Track announcer Gary Simons started out the evening by announcing the Special Awards winners.
Big Car / Bike Awards
After the special awards were presented we got down to distributing the points payouts and awards which were partially sponsored by The National Parts Peddler. Here is a brief rundown of the point’s champs.
Pro Sled ended in a tie between Herb Bingel and Kevin Wuest with Mike Stiles finishing in the third spot.
The Jr. Dragster top 10 all got various Savings Bonds that were donated by Duke & Mabel Risley and Rolland & Mary Schmidt.
That is a brief summary of the banquet, I want to thank all of our sponsors for all of their support throughout the year. A special thanks to those of you that came out and helped us both times with our guardrail projects. I also want to thank everyone that came out and supported the track despite the high price of fuel throughout the summer. Have a safe off season, enjoy the holidays and we’ll see you next season.
