Due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to end voting in the finals earlier than planned. There was an overwhelming number of votes cast and I can say with a VERY clear conscience, and without any doubt, that even if the voting had continued through Saturday night Josh Wise would still be your winner. In the end Josh beat David Ragan, 99.41% to 0.59%.
Congratulations to Josh Wise and his VERY supportive fan base. Dogecoin anyone? I, for one, am impressed by their dedication to the voting process. This contest isn’t rigged, it can’t be rigged and there’s literally NO POINT in it being rigged. It’s all done for fun.
Josh Wise will be the lucky owner of a trophy of hot sauce, that’s literally all he wins, well, that and bragging rights for having fans that are so focused on continuously voting — fairly! — that it overwhelmed my form.
I’m planning on attending the race at Texas at the end of October this year and I hope to present the award to Josh at that time. If I do I will definitely post a story about it with photos.
Thank you to everyone that participated in voting this year. This tournament was meant to be fun and I hope you had some in the process.
