                                               Trophy after being named the 2009 Speed Performer of the Year. The racing
                                               legend delivered the trophy to Schumacher during a surprise meeting near the
                                               latter’s home. Schumacher, who in November earned his sixth straight world
                                               championship, edged out NASCAR champ Jimmie Johnson and Superbike
                                               rookie Ben Spies to become the first NHRA recipient of the prestigious trophy.
                                               “I’m honored to be chosen for this award,” said Schumacher. “Of course, having

                                               Schumacher received six first-place votes from the voting panel, and Johnson and Spies each collected four.
