Las Vegas to keep awards ceremony
NASCAR announced Monday that the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards and Champion’s Week will return to Las Vegas for the next three years.
NASCAR on FOX brings live coverage of the Sprint Cup race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday. The green flag drops at 1 p.m. ET, with coverage on FOX beginning at 12:30 p.m. ET.
This will be the fourth season that the awards ceremony takes place at Wynn Las Vegas. The event will be held Friday, Nov. 30, after a week-long celebration for the series champion.
“Experience tells us that Las Vegas creates the perfect backdrop for our sport and our fans to join us in celebrating a NASCAR Sprint Cup championship,” said Steve Phelps, chief marketing officer for NASCAR. “Returning Champion’s Week and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards to Vegas for the next three years will help our loyal fans crystallize their plans to join us in putting the finishing touches on the season that was with a series of intriguing events across the city.”
From 1981 until 2008, NASCAR held awards ceremony in New York City, moving to Las Vegas in 2009. Since then, the ceremony has been in Vegas.
A full lineup of activities will be announced at a later date.
