2009 Year-End Awards Banquet

The Banquet was a great conclusion to a successful season. The event was expertly hosted and catered by Sam & Connie Bacon, Jeff and Hollie Yoder, and Brandon Yoder. The great meal was highlighted by Jeff and Hollie’s barbequing expertise of steak and chicken along with a potluck mountain of sides and deserts!! Sam and Connie’s motor home garage (completed only the weekend before) was the perfect room for all of the festivities.

We had nearly 50 people in attendance, with all of the top 9 finishers in the association.

The beautiful trophies by Jeff and Brandon Yoder

Jeff and Brandon Yoder designed and created all the event winner and runner up trophies for the 2009 season. For the year end finishers, they went over the top with HUGE first thru third place (Bob, Rick, and John) masterpieces!!! These works of automotive art included internal lighting to highlight the incredible laser cutouts.

Rookie of the Year, Emily Williams, with Chris

We had a special award that Chuck Linne put together for “2009 Rookie of the Year“. It was a hard fought battle, but EMDUB’s Emily Williams walked away with the honors after finishing in the eighth spot in points. Emily would also thank her crew chief/Dad/team owner/truck driver/pit crew, and our own webmaster, Chris Williams for her success. Plus her mom, Deb, for all her support.
