Track champions for each division will be officially handed their hardware for earning top spots in their respective weekly racing divisions highlighted by Sportsman Modified champion Todd Stone, who will take home his $5,000 share of over $25,000 in point fund monies. Other champions include Evan Roberts (Limited Sportsman), Logan Denis (500cc Mini Sprint), Chris Sumner (Mini Stock), and Chris Murray (Super Stock) will be honored along with specialty awards voted on by their peers.
Devil’s Bowl Speedway Banquet Of Champions continues to offer special awards along with the championships, trophies, and point fund monies distributed at the celebration. The Sportsmanship award carries a prestigious weight and goes to a driver who displays competitiveness, fairness, and respect to his or her peers. Most Improved awards go to drivers who have shown improvement both on and off the track.
There will also be special honors that include dedication to Devil’s Bowl that can be awarded to track officials, weekday staff members, or race fans that support the track with devotion, spirit, and dedication.
Also, one of the highest honors bestowed is the award of excellence each season, given to someone who is committed to the success and growth of Devil’s Bowl Speedway.
Finally, the highest honor of the evening is John Bruno Award, which is the most prestigious accolade one can earn. It is awarded to an individual who displays important principles set forth by Devil’s Bowl Speedway that may include lifetime contributions, highest principles, and extraordinary standards of conduct and respect.
