Congratulations to all of our 2008 winners. Also included were the "Best of The Best" chosen from each category and invited to the MAC Tool U.S. Nationals, Labor Day weekend at Oreilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis, IN., where they had the chance to become the inaugural recipient of the "Bob Daniels Award of Excellence". This award was created in the Memory of Bob Daniels who served as one of NHRA's Division Directors and was most instrumental in the start and growth of the Hot Rod Reunions featured in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Pictured in the gallery is Eileen Daniels, Bob's wife of over 50 years who carries on Bob's legacy and an ongoing part of today's hugely attended Reunion Show 'n Shine.
