2010 Unsung Hero Awards

Unsung Hero Awards: Over the next few days I will be selecting an ‘Unsung Hero’ from each of the North American series covered here:  Skip Barber National, USF2000 National Championship, F2000 Championship, Star Mazda  and the Indy Lights series.

I will post a profile piece on each of the chosen recipients.  So make sure to stop back.

Standard Disclaimer:  Several drivers are worthy recipients of this award.  If you’re not selected as an Unsung Hero it doesn’t mean you weren’t deserving.  The point of this write-up is to introduce readers to a few drivers that were impressive in 2010, but failed to receive a lot of press.  Obviously, there is more than one driver who fits into that category.

Selection Process: In order to keep things in perspective, I’ve chosen a driver who finished around the Top-Five or worse in the final point standings in a series that averaged around 10 entries/race.  For series that averaged closer to 20 entries/race or better than 10, I’ve selected a driver who finished around the Top-10 or worse in the final standings.

As the profiles are completed, I will link to each below.  Enjoy.
