Weedsport, NY — October 31, 2009 – By Tom Skibinski, DIRTcar Racing Northeast PR Director
The 34th Annual DIRTcar Racing Northeast ‘Night of Champions’ Awards Banquet arrives in just two more weeks. When the doors of the Turning Stone Resort & Casino swing open on November 14, top point chasers in the 2009 Hoosier Tire-VP Racing Fuels Mr. DIRTcar Pro Stock Championship Series will be in full force to share in a number of post-season awards.
“This has been our best season yet and we’re looking forward to continued growth in 2010,” remarked Pro Stock Series Director Brian Mulligan, who is already gearing up for his third full term guiding DIRTcar Northeast’s top full-fender touring division. “Increased car counts have generated plenty of interest this year which has helped attract more sponsorship support, something that all our teams can be very proud of.”
Mulligan spearheaded a special season-ending awards program that will reward nine drivers that comprised the list of those attending 100% of the events. Top wheelmen Pete Stefanski, Joey Ladouceur, P.J. Peters, Don Carlson, Dion Oakes, Rob Yetman, Stephane Lebrun, Roch Aubin and Sean Corr contended at all nine tour stops and will receive $50 certificates from Allstar Performance, along with three more drivers that will be recognized Saturday night for their own special achievements.
Partnering with EMS (Eric’s Machine Shop) chassis builder and body dealer Eric Marin, marketing specialist Mulligan created a second special reward package for those same drivers that logged perfect attendance. The names of all nine will be thrown into a hat at the upcoming DIRTcar NE Banquet, with one drawn to receive a Five Star Body.
Throughout the season Mulligan also executed an exclusive ‘National Parts Peddler Halfway Bonus’ leader award presentation at each series show. Working closely with Corky Stockham to fulfill a program that rewarded every series race halfway leader with a $100 certificate, the complimentary certificates can be presented to any participating vendor for an equivalent discount at the 30th National Parts Peddler Trade Show & Auction, Nov. 20-22, at the New York State Fairgrounds.
NPPN Halfway Leaders in 2009 were overall Hoosier-VP Mr. DIRTcar Champion Stefanski (2 races), Ladouceur (4), Carlson, Jody Swamp and Ghislain Valade.
