MAHLE Clevite Inc. Crowns MAHLE Engine Builder of the Year for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series
MAHLE Clevite Inc. recently announced Shane Parsnow of Hendrick Motorsports as the 2009 MAHLE Engine Builder of the Year for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series.
Parsnow, engine builder for Hendrick Motorsports, received this award for accumulating the most MAHLE Clevite points (307), based on qualifying, laps lead and finishing position. Fellow Hendrick Motorsports engine builders, Danny Emerick and Earl Wheeler, finished in second place with 288 points and third place with 254 points respectively.
This is Hedrick Motorsports’ fourth consecutive Engine Builder of the Year title, and Parsnow’s second in four years. Parsnow was presented with the coveted award at the annual Myers Brothers’ Award Presentation held a day in advance of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Banquet at the Wynn Las Vegas on Friday, December 4th. Over the years, Hendrick Motorsports has racked-up a total of 14 MAHLE Engine Builder of the Year titles.
“We had another successful year here at Hendrick Motorsports that put our cars one, two and three in the final chase,” said Parsnow. “We had a total of five engines in the Chase for the Cup this year, and of those 50 motors across the 10 Chase races, not a single failure! I’d like to take this opportunity to thank MAHLE Clevite for supplying our race team with the quality parts that have helped us stay on top over the past four years.”
