Steve Brule from Westech was named the 2019 MPMC Robert E. Petersen Award winner—a prestigious honor presented annually to an influential and supportive journalist.
Brule is co-host of the “Engine Master Show,” and works with numerous media outlets on engine-related projects.
Other finalists for this year's award included:
- Wes Buck, Drag Illustrated
- Mike Finnegan, Finnegan’s Garage
- Doug Glad, Hot Rod Network
- Richard Holdener, Engine Labs
The presentation took place during the 2019 MPMC Media Trade Conference, where 100 manufacturers connect in private, one-on-one interviews with hundreds of journalists over three days.
Colleagues celebrated Brulé with a round of applause and a literal shower of confetti as he made his way to the podium to accept the coveted award. He then invited media colleagues to join him on stage, acknowledging that it’s a team effort.
