The nominations for the prestigious 2020 Comcast Community Champion of the Year award are now officially open and will remain open through July 27. Comcast created this award at the beginning of our NASCAR partnership to recognize and honor the incredible individuals in this industry who are giving back to their communities in remarkable ways. Each year, we’re able to shine a spotlight on exceptional stories of selfless acts and noble causes and that’s where we’re asking for assistance from race fans and industry members.
We need your help finding these industry heroes who are working hard to make a difference. Previous champions and finalists range from mechanics at the shop to pit crew members and track presidents. If you know a deserving candidate, please take the time to nominate them, and learn additional details about the award, by visiting ComcastCommunityChampion.com.
Eligible award recipients from NASCAR’s top-three national series include:
• Race team owners, employees and drivers
• Employees from tracks on the 2020 schedule
• NASCAR officials
• Motorsports media members
Comcast will select and honor three finalists, sharing their stories publicly later this year. A committee of NASCAR & Comcast executives will then determine the Comcast Community Champion of the Year, awarding $60,000 to the champion’s affiliated charity and $30,000 to each of the two finalists’ selected charities. Since the program kicked off in 2015, we’ve donated a total of $600,000 to causes of inspirational individuals in the NASCAR industry who are truly living Comcast’s core values.
Thank you in advance for your help in identifying deserving individuals to be the next Comcast Community Champion. Continue to take care of yourselves and your loved ones during these unprecedented times.
Vice President, Brand Partnerships & Activation at Comcast
