The entire team at Xcleration Media is privileged to congratulate John DiBartolomeo, the Editor of Drag Racing Scene, for being honored with the Robert E. Petersen Media Person of the Year Award for 2015. This award is voted on by members the SEMA Motorsports Parts Manufacturers Council (MPMC) and was presented to John during the 2015 Media Trade Conference held in Santa Ana, California.
John has been involved in motorosports as a journalist, a company owner, and a drag racer for many years with multiple NHRA national and divisional wins to his credit. His ability to provide real world reporting on products and their use in drag racing combined with event news and a focus on grassroots racing has, and continues, to have a positive impact on the motorsports industry.
This award, voted on by the membership of MPMC, is acknowledgement of those individuals whose life and work has made a significant contribution to the motorsports market. It is a tremendous honor for John and everyone at Xceleration Media, including OneDirt, Power & Performance News, Gearheads4Life and Street Rod Life. Congratulations John!
