The ballots for the 45th annual "Western PA Rookie of the Year" were mailed today to some 80 members of the media and track officials. Voting deadline is Feb. 24, with the winner announced at the Lernerville banquet on March 15. GOOD RACING TO ALL!!! Walt

Walt, I think I can speak for all when I say what a great thing you've done for the young up-and-coming drivers in the area for so many years. It's been a pleasure to be on your selection committee. Always fun to look at the list of past winners and see where their careers have taken them since receiving the WP Rookie of the Year from you. Jim Zufall

With over 40 ballots returned so far I have the closest race in the 45 year history of the award!! The leading driver is just two votes ahead of a three-way tie for second!! A very close and interesting race to say the least!! GOOD RACING TO ALL!! Walt
