IndyCar team owner Bryan Herta will be honored this Saturday with the FIA Americas Award in Panama City, Panama.
The award was established in 2008, and this year's Awards Gala will have 29 countries represented, with each country receiving both national and continental awards.
The former CART IndyCar driver was nominated for the award by the Skip Barber Racing School, where he got his initial start in pro racing back in 1990.
"We are excited for the opportunity to highlight an outstanding race car driver and team owner in Bryan Herta," Skip Barber CEO Michael Culver said, according to a story on Racer.com. "He is an exceptional individual who possesses admirable traits of perseverance, passion and determination.
"He continues to influence the motorsports world and will do so for a very long time. Bryan is very deserving of this award and we're thrilled for him."
