        Tony Stewart Racing claimed the NMDOTY Car Owner Championship by 39 points over Terry Klatt. The top ten drivers and car owners along with Manufacturers Champions Ford-Esslinger (engine) and Spike (chassis) and Design 500 Rookie of the Year Nic Faas will receive their point fund checks and trophies in the annual ceremony held during the final night of the Chili Bowl Midget Nationals on Jan. 17, 2009.
