Sprint Cup Awards Ceremony back in Las Vegas
NASCAR’s Sprint Cup Awards Ceremony and Champion’s Week will return to Las Vegas for the seventh consecutive year.
NASCAR announced Monday morning that the event honoring the 2015 champion will be held Friday, Dec. 4 at the Wynn Las Vegas. The awards ceremony will conclude Champion’s Week, which will begin Dec. 1-2 with the 16th annual Daytona Rising/NASCAR Motorsports Marketing Forum hosted at The Mirage by the Sports Business Journal.
“We’ve had a great experience in Las Vegas and are very pleased to extend our partnership with the city,” NASCAR executive vice president and chief marketing officer Steve Phelps said in a release. “Las Vegas has consistently set the stage for a vibrant, exciting NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion’s Week, when the sport looks back on the season and toasts its newest champion.”
