Dale Earnhardt Jr Voted Most Popular Driver

(Over 7500 people took the opportunity to vote for the Most Popular Driver in the NASCAR Camping World Series West via the website. The 2008 recipient of the special award is Bill McAnally Racing’s Moses Smith, driver of the No. 16 Hasa Pool Products/White Flyer Toyota Camry. This was Smith’s sophomore season in NASCAR. He and the Hasa team finished sixth in the chase for the series championship.)

For the sixth straight year, Dale Earnhardt Jr. accepted the Chex Cereals Most Popular Driver Award. The award was presented at the 2008 NASCAR NMPA Myers Brothers Media Luncheon at Cipriani in New York City. More than 1.2 million fan votes were cast for Earnhardt Jr. “It’s a great honor to be chosen by the fans once again,” Earnhardt Jr. said. “NASCAR fans are the best in all of sports and we’re fortunate to have a large group of fans that have been extremely loyal to us over the years."
