Submitted my vote. Guys please submit a vote for this honor. There are many behind the scenes people that we all owe are ability to race that need to be recognized. Trophy was a one of the kind legends of this sport. I have meet many people that should be in the same league and deserve to be honored this award. There is no thank you that would make them proud than you nominating them for this.
