“Kyle Busch may not have the best off-track reputation in auto racing, but the numbers he put on the board this season could not be disputed,” said NSSN Publisher Corinne Economaki.

Kyle Busch has been selected as the winner of the seventh annual Economaki Champion of Champions presented by National Speed Sport News.

Awarded annually to a driver who wins a racing championship racing in North America, the staff of National Speed Sport News factors in points, number of events, competition, adversity, and travel schedule. Previous winners of the Economaki Champion of Champions are Tony Schumacher (twice), Donny Schatz, Steve Kinser, Jimmie Johnson and J.J. Yeley.

Busch won the NASCAR Nationwide Series championship, and recorded 20 victories in the three national NASCAR tours and 25 overall stock-car triumphs including the recent Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla.

As has become tradition for the Economaki Champion of Champions, Busch was recognized on the cover of the year-end issue of National Speed Sport News, which wrapped up its 75th anniversary celebration with the same Dec. 16 issue.

“Kyle Busch may not have the best off-track reputation in auto racing, but the numbers he put on the board this season could not be disputed,” said NSSN Publisher Corinne Economaki. “While the sagging economy helped leave us without a sponsor for the Economaki Champion of Champions this year, it remains an important award, which would be a great value for a motorsports company during the 2010 racing season.

“We salute Kyle Busch as our 2009 Economaki Champion of Champions and we are proud to recognize his accomplishments.”

In seven years, drivers from five racing series have received the Economaki Champion of Champions, which is named for longtime National Speed Sport News Editor Chris Economaki.
