DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- NASCAR announced today that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards -- the annual culmination of Champion's Week -- will be held on Friday, Dec. 5, at Wynn Las Vegas. This is the sixth year that NASCAR has celebrated Champion's Week in the city of Las Vegas, a tradition that has featured a bevy of A-list entertainers and fan-friendly activities involving the sport's biggest stars.
Last year’s show, which honored six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion Jimmie Johnson, featured many memorable moments from host Jay Mohr and entertainers John Mellencamp, Dierks Bentley and Sara Bareilles.
"Two of the world's most recognizable brands, NASCAR and Las Vegas, have developed a strong and successful partnership that delivers unrivaled excitement to the sport's loyal fans," said Rossi Ralenkotter, president/CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. "We're proud to celebrate this milestone as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards and its Champion's Week return for the sixth year, proving that no destination matches the passion and energy of NASCAR like Las Vegas."
NASCAR also announced that the 2014 NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Awards will hold a joint celebration on Monday, Nov. 17, at Trump National Doral Miami. The event will honor the series driver and owner champions, as well as the top five drivers in each series.
This is the first year the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Awards will have been held at Trump National Doral Miami. The property was recently purchased by the Trump Organization with plans for a $250 million resort-wide restoration.
"We are honored to host our first-ever joint celebration of these superb events at Trump National Doral Miami," said Donald Trump Jr., Executive Vice President of Development and Acquisitions at The Trump Organization. "Our vision for the expansive transformation has been to create an unparalleled event experience and welcome these awards to our newly restored resort."
"NASCAR's postseason celebrations continue to be highly anticipated, can't-miss events on the season's calendar," said NASCAR Chief Operating Officer Brent Dewar. "Las Vegas was built on world-class entertainment, and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards and Champion's Week fit perfectly. In addition, we're thrilled to shift the NASCAR Nationwide Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Awards to Trump National Doral Miami. It's a first-class property that will certainly provide an elevated experience for our industry and our championship teams."
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards will air on FOX Sports 1 beginning at 9 p.m. ET. MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio will carry the awards show live.
