Awards Banquet Celebrates 2010 Top Drivers



CONCORD, N.C. (Dec. 10, 2010) – Keith Rocco’s breakthrough season culminated Friday night with his coronation as the 2010 national champion at the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards Banquet at the Charlotte Convention Center at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.

Rocco, 25, from Wallingford, Conn., also collected his third straight NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Connecticut championship, as well as the asphalt Modified Division track titles at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway and Waterford (Conn.) Speedbowl.

After finishing fourth in the national standings in 2007 and 2008, and second in 2009, Rocco put together a season for the record books. He had 21 wins, 39 top fives and 50 top 10s in 53 starts en route to collecting 810 points — the maximum total a driver can accumulate.

He became the first national champion to accomplish this feat under the NASCAR championship format since the late Larry Phillips and current NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Greg Biffle in 1995. Phillips and Biffle achieved the maximum points under the system at the time; Phillips won the crown by virtue of more overall wins (32-27).

Rocco drove the No. 88 for John Rufrano to a track-record 10 wins and the SK Modified Division title at Stafford. He also piloted the No. 57 for Mark Pane to the track championship at Waterford, and won twice in it at Thompson (Conn.) International Speedway. Rufrano and Pane received the Lincoln Electric Car Owner Award for their championship efforts.

Jeff Rocco, Keith’s twin brother, and Shane Hopkins were honored with the Lunati Crew Chief Award.

Craig Preble, of Yutan, Neb., finished second in the national standings and led the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series with 22 wins. The 43-year-old from Yutan, Neb., won the crate dirt Late Model division championship at I-80 Speedway in Omaha, Neb., finished third at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Neb., and won the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Nebraska title.

Duane Howard, from Oley, Penn., finished third in the national standings with eight wins. Howard was the track champion at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Penn., and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Pennsylvania champion.

Headlining the evening's special awards was the Whelen All-American Series National Rookie of the Year Award presented by Jostens. Chad Mahder, a 25-year-old from Eau Claire, Wisc., took home the honors after he collected six wins, won the Impact Printing Late Model Division at Cedar Lake Speedway in New Richmond, Wisc., and finished 16th in the nation.

Sloan Henderson, 18, of Columbus, Ohio, was presented the prestigious Wendell Scott Trail Blazer Award. John Schadecker, the crew chief for driver Chris Turbish and Roger Turbish at Riverhead (N.Y.) Raceway, took home Craftsman Mechanic of the Year honors.

New this year, NASCAR introduced the Finalist Program to spotlight drivers outside the Division I at each NASCAR Whelen All-American Series track. The top three in each division were recognized Friday.
