Mark Burkhardt Ambassador Award:

A custom Late-Model HEMI Shootout jacket and a $1,000 shopHEMI.com gift certificate will be awarded to one Late-Model HEMI Shootout participant in honor of Mark Burkhardt, a shopHEMI.com employee and good friend of the NMCA who passed away in 2009. The winner will be the person who shopHEMI.com and the NMCA recognize as contributing the most to the growth and success of the Late-Model HEMI movement in 2011. The very first Mark Burkhardt Ambassador award winner was Eric Storms, who was instrumental in the growth of the modern HEMI segment in 2010.
