KNOXVILLE, IOWA (April 26, 2005) - For the second year in a row, World Series Sprintcars (WSS) point champion Max Dumesny of Australia outpointed fellow Aussie Robbie Farr to earn the Australian Sprintcar Poll (ASP) "Driver of the Year" title. Dumesny claimed seven of the sixteen first-place votes cast by the select panel of Australian manufacturers, media members, promoters and sanctioning officials in the final 2004/2005 voting, while Farr earned five blue ribbons. Other single first place vote-getters were Grand Annual Sprintcar Classic (GASC) winner Kerry Madsen, Parramatta City Raceway's World of Outlaws (WoO) winner Donny Schatz, first-time Australia Sprintcar Title winner Brooke Tatnell, and PCR WoO runner-up Danny Lasoski, respectively. Max and the other poll award recipients will receive their honors on Friday, August 12, during the 2005 Knoxville Nationals in Knoxville, Iowa.

Dumesny is Unanimous Aussie Driver of the Year - KNOXVILLE, IOWA (APRIL 27, 2002) - World Series Sprintcars (WSS) champion Max Dumesny, the Victorian-turned-Sydneysider, continues to record new milestones in his accomplished career. The latest feat is that he has successfully defended his Australian National Sprintcar Poll (ANSP) "Driver of the Year" title... unanimously! It is the first time in the nine-year history of the ANSP that the select voting panel of media members, promoters, sanctioning officials and manufacturers have totally agreed on the number one ranking at the conclusion of their racing season (September - April). Dumesny, who scored a victory in the Australian Title race at the Parramatta City Raceway (PCR), collected all fifteen (15) first place votes and also captured the "Team of the Year" honors for the second consecutive season with his Darryl "Mouse" Green-led Valvoline team.
