St. Peters, MO – The American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association announced the winners of its 2017 Nationwide Media Contest. Presented for excellence in motorsports journalism, photography, broadcasting and books, the annual contest selects the top three entries for each of the 22 categories.

“LandSpeed” Louise Ann Noeth was recognized seven times: 4 First Place spots, 2 Second Place slots and 1 Third Place nod. All first places were for magazine writing: Feature, News, and a pair in the always-tough Technical categories. Demonstrating her indomitable competitive spirit to delve into several competition segments, her business reporting covered Road Racing and the red-hot emerging Electric Racing. Noeth’s photography showcased three racing sectors: Land Speed, INDYCAR and Drag Racing.

Of particular note, women journalists dispatched all contenders in the Magazine Technical category, swept the online technical category.

“I am well pleased that we gals dominated the Online Technical Report category” said Noeth. “It’s more than simply liking racing, it’s KNOWING racing with all of its nuances and energized competitors that makes for a grand challenge when tackling the tech stuff. Way to go ladies!

And about my action photo sequence pacing Chris “The Golden Greek” Karamesines as he vigorously overcooked his top fuel engine in 3 seconds. My ability to capture the flaming, smoke-belching drama was a fluke imaged on my smartypants phone. All 65 slices were got whilst being bathed in the noxious nitro cascade. This was done with a phone people, a stinking phone, and one so new that I had no idea that keeping my finger depressed on what passes for a shutter button meant the technological beast kept firing. I discovered the images – all in focus – about an hour later rolling through the captures in the NHRA/Gateway press room. What a pro, eh?
