INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (November 29, 2001) - David Chappell, owner of son Zach's American Sprint Car Series (ASCS) championship-winning 360- cubic-inch sprint car team, claimed "Team of the Year" honors from the voting panel of the National 360 Sprint Car Poll. Joining the senior Chappell in receiving the special plaques were crew members Donnie Critz and Larry Atkins. Zach Chappell also received the "Driver of the Year" honors at the 2001 National Sprint Car Poll awards reception at the Westin in Indianapolis on Thursday evening, as part of the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) Trade Show.

The 360 "Rookie of the Year" honors went to United Racing Club (URC) regular Jeff Busby. The former micro-sprint racer even earned a URC feature win this year in his native Delaware.

Allan Holland, web-master at his own www.hoseheads.com, captured his second "Media Member of the Year" award for his on-line efforts. A plumber by trade, Holland began expanding his influence within sprint car racing in 2001.

Fred Brownfield of the Northern Sprint Tour (NST) received his first 360 "Promoter of the Year" title. Brownfield's NST is known nationwide for putting on exciting and entertaining 360-c.i. sprint car racing with some of the best drivers in the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.

J.V. Brotherton of Brodix Cylinder Heads was honored as the recipient of the "Builder/Manufacturer of the Year" award by the National 360 Sprint Car Poll voting panel of media members, sanctioning officials, track promoters and sprint car manufacturers. Brotherton, who with Emmett Hahn developed the ASCS spec head, earned the same honor in the year 2000.

Minnesota rim-rider Tony Norem started the evening by receiving the 360 "Wild Card Award", which he earned over the course of the season by his exciting sprint car performances in front of the poll's voters.
