NASCAR UNVEILS MAJOR EVENTS
TOURING AND WEEKLY SERIES
NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Awards
Moves To Concord, North Carolina,
“2009 NASCAR Night Of Champions Touring Awards Gala” Announced
The National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) announced today
that its “stars of tomorrow” and short track veterans will gather in the
greater Charlotte area for two special year-end celebrations.
NASCAR will host a special week of activities culminating in the
2009 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series (NWAAS) Awards Banquet on Friday,
November 13, and the new NASCAR Night of Champions Touring Awards Gala on
Saturday, November 14.
“This is a tremendous opportunity to raise the bar for all of
NASCAR’s developmental racing series, by bringing the champions from all of
our series to the core of much of the motorsports industry,” said George
Silbermann, managing director of racing operations. “In addition to these
two prestigious awards banquets, we are planning a number of special
activities for our series champions, for attending track operators, and for
the industry. We look to take full advantage of what this hub of the stock
car racing industry has to offer.”
Both season-end awards banquets will be held in the
recently-completed Embassy Suites Hotel Concord Convention Center which is
located near the NASCAR Research & Development Center, in proximity to the
future NASCAR Hall of Fame complex, as well as the home bases of many of
today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR
Camping World Truck Series teams.
Moving the banquets to the Charlotte area compliments the
commitment the community has made to the business of NASCAR and the
development of the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
The NWAAS Awards Banquet will feature weekly racing drivers from
top short tracks across the United States and Canada. Invited attendees will
include the 2009 NWAAS National Champion, NWAAS State and Provincial
Champions, all 58 track champions, the national/ state/provincial Rookies of
the Year, the 2009 Wendell Scott Trailblazer Award winner, and many others.
The NASCAR Night of Champions Touring Gala will feature the
champions and top drivers from all of NASCAR’s North American regional
touring series including invitees from the NASCAR Camping World Series East,
the NASCAR Camping World Series West, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, the
NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour, and the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series.
Further details will be released in the coming months.
