As part of its long-term partnership with NASCAR, Comcast announced the creation of the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award, honoring NASCAR team members for their outstanding charitable endeavors. The 2015 Comcast Community Champion of the Year recognizes an individual in the NASCAR® industry for their community service-focused efforts to make the world a better place.
The annual award will celebrate the philanthropic efforts being made by race teams across all three national series.
An individual from each national series will be honored, with one of the three earning the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award. In recognition of their efforts, a donation of $60,000 will be made in the winner’s name to their affiliated charitable organization. A $30,000 contribution will also be made to each of the remaining finalists’ charitable organizations.
Eligible recipients include team owners, drivers, and all NASCAR Sprint Cup Series™, NASCAR XFINITY Series™ and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series™ team employees. A race team employee from each of the three national series will be honored, with one of the three earning the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award.
Nominees will be narrowed down to three finalists, with a panel of judges comprised of executives from Comcast, The NASCAR Foundation, a former NASCAR driver and a member of the national motorsports media, to determine the recipient of the award. The award will be presented at the NASCAR XFINITY Series and Camping World Truck Series Banquet at the end of the season in South Florida.
