Kincrome Backing Crew Chief Award for NSSS

25/11/09…NASR National Office

In all forms of motorsport competition, it is almost always the driver alone who enjoys the recognition, acclaim and riches that are the rewards for success in their chosen sport.  However, such is the nature of motor racing, nobody can succeed in isolation and, despite its outwardly individualistic nature, motorsport is very much a team pursuit. There are a variety of other people who play a critical role in any on-track success for all competitors across all racing categories.       

With 10 rounds of racing scheduled over four weeks, the 2009/2010 Carline Mufflers National Super Sedan Series will be the ultimate test of reliability, resourcefulness and resilience amongst participating teams.  Whilst it will be the drivers who secure the headlines and hardware that accompany success in the series, it is the hard working crews responsible for the maintenance and repairs of the cars – often with minimal time in difficult conditions – who are the real heroes.  To recognise the efforts of the crews who keep the cars on track throughout the series, the Kincrome Crew Chief of the Year Award will be presented to the crew chief deemed to have been the most outstanding across the 10 rounds of competition. 

Kincrome are making their first foray into sponsorship of the Carline Mufflers National Super Sedan Series with a great prize package.  The winning crew chief will pick up a Kincrome toolbox and tools valued at more than $500 courtesy of Kincrome and Auto One Cessnock. At each round of the series, NSSS officials will allocate points on 3-2-1 basis to the crew chiefs whose efforts are most meritorious.  Factors taken into account will include the overall ongoing presentation of the car, the efficiency and effectiveness with which any repairs have been undertaken, reliability and the consistency of the on-track performance of the car and driver under a variety of track conditions. The crew chief who accumulates the most votes across the 10 rounds will be the Kincrome Crew Chief of the Year.
