NICHOLS, N.Y. -- The sounds of thunder rolled on Saturday at Tioga Downs Casino in Nichols, N.Y. as over 200 guests viewed a recap of the 2009 season at Skyview Drags in Tioga Center, N.Y. during an annual dinner that recognized drivers and supporters of the 1/8 mile track.

The event, which recognized dozens of drivers for Rookie of the Year, Sportsman of the Year and even a Hard Luck Award, was announced by The Daily Review's own Greg Zyla, publisher; and Bob Russell, track announcer for the 1/8 mile track at Skyview Drags.

Track Manager Amy Culver organized the event to bring what she considers a "track family" together in celebration of their best year ever. According to Culver, the track - when it opened mid-season in 2004 - had ten cars that arrived to run the track. By 2009, the track had approximately 108 drivers that were officially signed up for weekly Summit Series racing points.
