Ricky personally asked us to pass along this message:
I’d like to take this opportunity to say that I have the best fans in the world. Without my fans’ and my sponsors’ full support, I would have never had the chance or the honor of winning the Most Popular Driver award of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
I am still amazed that I have won this award in such great competitive company. I have a lot of respect for the other racers, both personally and professionally. I never imagined that I could win against the guys I was stacked up against.
Once again I owe it all to my loyal fans that have stuck with me throughout my motorcycle career, those that have followed me over to NASCAR, as well as the fans that I have gained in four wheel racing. If it wasn't for you guys, none of this would have been possible and that is why we are able to race and perform. It’s why I love what I do.
