HANS Device Receives First Auto Racing Safety and Humanitarian Award

Atlanta, Georgia (January 15, 2007) -- Bob Hubbard and Jim Downing, founders of HANS Performance Products, industry leaders of the internationally award winning HANS Device, were recipients of the American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association's inaugural Auto Racing Safety and Humanitarian Service Award (AARWBA.)

The award was presented at the AARWBA's 37th All America Team Banquet on January 13th. Bob Hubbard said, "We entered this business to make a difference, not a profit. And still, to this day, the HANS Device continues to make a difference in racing communities all over the world.

The AARWBA committee, comprised of professional motor sports journalists and photographers, were given a list of organizations and people who met certain criteria for the award. Part of the criteria required acts of kindness of heroic proportion without regard to the consequences.

Jim Downing said, we are tireless in our desire to help all racers and rule makers understand the safety benefits that head and neck restraints, such as HANS Devices, can provide. We appreciate the AARWBA recognizing our hard work and dedication to the safety of racing."
