    The NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour will once again hold its annual awards banquet at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. The season-ending ceremony will be Friday, Dec. 14.
    The celebration will honor the 2007 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion, in addition to other special award winners.
    “The Mohegan Sun is a first class destination facility,” said George Silbermann, NASCAR managing director of racing operations. “It is an ideal place to host the season-end Awards Banquet for a first class series like the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour.”
    Series sponsor Whelen Engineering, based in nearby Chester, Conn., and NASCAR will present the 2007 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion with a new trophy this year that recognizes the history of the Modified Tour. The three-tiered trophy, which is just over 3 feet tall and is topped with a hand-blown cut crystal bowl, includes a chronological list of names of every Modified champion, dating back to Red Byron’s inaugural title in 1948.
    Mohegan Sun, owned by the Mohegan Tribe, is one of the largest, most distinctive and spectacular entertainment, gaming, shopping and meeting destinations in the United States. What began with the Casino of the Earth in 1996 has evolved into a legendary destination that now includes over 300,000 square feet of total gaming space; the 10,000-seat Mohegan Sun Arena for world-class sporting events; and a 34-story luxury hotel, featuring 1,200 guest rooms and suites, and premier meeting and convention space.
