After his dominating performance, the 2009 World Superbike Champion Ben Spies is a candidate for Speed TV’s Performance Award “Rookie of the Year”.
During his rookie WSB season, Spies won the title with 14 wins in 28 starts, and a record-breaking 11 pole positions.
The Yamaha Sterligarda man, who will race in MotoGP for 2010 alongside fellow Texan Colin Edwards, will be competing against three candidates for the award: the Formula 1 Brawn Racing Team, which also won a title in its first year, Stewart-Haas Racing which finished sixth in the NASCAR Sprint Cup and Parker Kligerman, who finished runner-up in the ARCA stock car series in the USA.
So make sure to vote…not only does Spies deserve it, but also the whole motorcycle racing industry.
