Vote for Chad in the Stewies

The nominees are in for the 2009 Stewie Awards, and I am proud to announce that Messrs. Chad Knaus and Alan Gustafson have been co-nominated for the Smokey Yunick Award (Best Engineering and Special Effects)! They were selected for an "Honorable Mention" nomination for being warned by NASCAR officials that their cars were "too close to the tolerance limits" yet not actually illegal. You can vote at through Sunday, Nov. 29. The Stewie Awards will be broadcast live from the Rio Las Vegas on Thursday, Dec. 3 at 10 pm ET on Sirius & XM channel 128.

I think they deserve to win the award, don't you? The rest of the nominees are kind of blah this year (front end's too low...what else is new?) except for Carl Long and his oversized engine, but this is supposed to be "acknowledging the year's most 'creative' modifications to a race car," and I don't think that was all that "creative." So even though I'm just a little biased, I'm going to give it to Chad and Alan because it was creative in that they didn't get caught because it was just this side of illegal! Also, you can't discount the size of the stir it caused... I've never seen such a big flap over nothing in my life, and I think that should count for something, lol.
