New York, NY (11 March 2005) - The Red Bull Driver Search, a unique program designed to discover and support aspiring, young racecar drivers, is expanding its youth mentoring activities with the creation of The Chris Economaki Junior Journalism Award. Students who best exemplify writing and reporting skills and achievement in covering the motorsports industry will be honored.

The Chris Economaki Junior Journalism Award pays tribute to its namesake, the world's foremost auto racing reporter and legendary motorsports broadcaster. His distinguished career includes a 23-year run telecasting races for ABC Sports, followed by 10 years with CBS. Now 84 years old, he still does occasional hosting for ESPN, SPEED Channel and other TV networks, in addition to his by-lined "Editor's Notebook" column in National Speed Sport News, where he served as publisher for more than 50 years.
