For the Champion Seed Western Series banquet they offered a host of points champions to be recognized in the spotlight at their ceremony at the Holiday Inn in Council Bluffs, Iowa. They also took the time to recognize a singular person for their impact on the circuit, and this year’s winner of the Western Series Person of the Year went to 95 Limited Pro Stock puller Connie Mullenix (shown right, with husband Jerry Mullenix).
