NASCAR moves two award banquets to Charlotte

The annual Camping World Truck and Xfinity series season-ending awards gala will move to Charlotte this year.

NASCAR on Wednesday evening announced those series’ awards would combine with the celebration of NASCAR Whelen All-American Series and NASCAR Touring Series for a weekend of festivities in December at the Crown Ballroom in the Charlotte Convention Center.

The Truck and Xfinity awards were most recently held in the Miami area immediately following those series’ final race of the season at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The Truck and Xfinity awards will now take place on Saturday, Dec. 9. The Whelen All-American and Touring series event will take place on Dec. 8.

“Hosting the awards in Charlotte provides an opportunity to honor these series' champions in a year-end, week-long celebration of their own," said Jill Gregory, NASCAR’s senior vice president and chief marketing officer.

“This will allow for broader participation by the entire industry – teams, partners and fans alike – and promises to be an even bigger event that honors our deserved champions."
