Thursday, December 16, 2010
On Wednesday, NASCAR driver was named the 2010 . Anyone who competes in a vehicle with four wheels in the United States is eligible to win the award. By doing so, he tied his team mate with four, the most in its 44 year history.
Barry Schmoyer, president of the award panel, said, "This year's pre-vote teleconference was one of the most spirited debates that I can recall. As many people have said already, it will be a long time before anyone will set the bar as high as Jimmie Johnson." The trophy and awristwatch are some of the items he will receive as the winner. The place and time where they will be presented will be announced at a later date.
