This is the third season Tim Hortons at the Airport will sponsor the Rookie of the Year in all six Weekly Racing Series divisions. A cash award (with the exception of Bandoleros) and trophy will be presented to the winning rookie in each class at the year-end awards banquet compliments of Tim Hortons at the Airport.
