THE LATE FRED BROWNFIELD NAMED 2006 RECIPIENT OF "OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO THE SPORT AWARD" BY NORTH AMERICAN SPRINT CAR POLL

KNOXVILLE, IOWA (December 13, 2006) - The late Fred Brownfield, founder of both the Northern Sprint Tour for winged 360-cubic-inch sprint cars and the National Sprint Tour for winged 410's, has posthumously been named the recipient of the "Outstanding Contribution to the Sport Award" by all three voting panels of the North American Sprint Car Poll. According to poll founder and National Sprint Car Museum director Tom Schmeh, "The poll's Outstanding Contribution Award is the museum foundation's highest honor for current achievers in the sport, as it is voted on by industry insiders from the 360-, 410-cubic-inch, and non-winged sprint car divisions. Fred, who was our '360' Promoter of the Year in 2001 and a nominee for this Outstanding Contribution Award in 2005, truly has had a positive impact upon the whole of our sport through his leadership role with both NST series prior to his tragic death at his own Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Washington, this past summer."

Past recipients of the North American Sprint Car Poll's "Outstanding Contribution to the Sport Award" are as follows: Doug Auld, the late Hank Gentzler, Tony Stewart, Emmett Hahn, Allan Holland, Dave Argabright, Ron Shuman, the late Kevin Gobrecht, Jack Hewitt, Jack Miller, Brad Doty, Art & Carol Malies, Dave Bowman, Ralph Capitani, the late Ted Johnson, Mark Kuchan, Steve Kinser, the late Don Martin, Steve Beitler, Lee Brewer, Mark Kinser, Frank Lewis, Earl Baltes, Casey & Beverly Luna, Elayne Hoff, Jean Lynch, the late J.W.
