Outstanding choice. Having competed with Kyle the entire year he is most deserving of this award. Kyle drove the entire season very competitively and in the best sprit of our sport. Kyle is both a tenacious racer and more importantly in my opinion a tremendous gentleman both on and off the track. Well done Kyle – congratulations
