Tioga Downs will continue the tradition of honouring its defending Drivers’ Champion with a bobblehead during the Drivers’ Championship the following year.

In 2010, Tioga Downs will unveil the Jason Bartlett Bobblehead Giveaway on Sunday, August 1. The initiative is sponsored by Winbak Farm and Tioga Downs, which also marks the fourth edition of the Drivers’ Championship.

Bartlett took home bragging rights and the top prize of $25,000 after beating out the top seven money-winning drivers in the sport, the top money winning driver at Tioga Downs, and one sponsors' exemption.

“We are honoured to roll out the Jason Bartlett bobblehead in honour of Jason’s Drivers’ Championship win last year," Jason Settlemoir, vice president of Racing and Simulcast, said. "Bartlett is a rising superstar in our sport and we are our proud to work with him on the bobblehead and give them away to fans on one of our marquee events of the year”

The giveaway will begin at 12:00 p.m. on the trackside apron, and Jason Bartlett will be down there as well to sign some bobbleheads.

The other eight drivers for the Drivers' Championship will also be on hand for a driver meet and greet and autograph session. Bobbleheads will be given out to the public while supplies last.
