2023 NASCAR Awards: Honoring Champions in Nashville’s Grand Celebration

As the checkered flag waves on the 2023 NASCAR season in Phoenix, anticipation mounts for the prestigious NASCAR Awards Banquet, a crowning moment that lauds the year’s top drivers across all NASCAR series.

This year, details about the event seemed shrouded in mystery, a departure from the norm. Unlike previous seasons where banquet specifics emerged as early as September, it wasn’t until late October that this season’s ceremony particulars were unveiled.

Set for Thursday, November 30th, the 2023 NASCAR Awards Banquet will unfold at Nashville’s iconic Music City Center, a formal extravaganza honoring champions like Ryan Blaney, Cole Custer, and Ben Rhodes across the NASCAR national series.

This annual gathering holds a legacy dating back to 1981, marking its inception in New York City. After a stint in Las Vegas starting in 2009, the banquet found its new home in Nashville in 2019.

Moreover, Nashville will welcome champions from various stock car racing series on Tuesday, November 28th, a first for the city, showcasing victors from the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, ARCA Menards Series, and more.

Beyond the awards night, NASCAR gears up for two exciting fan-centric events. On November 29th, the city center will pulse with the vibrant NASCAR House from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT. Following that, Broadway transforms into a captivating parade route for the Champion Car Parade from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. CT, showcasing the winning cars.

Last year’s ceremony at the Music City Center featured racing legend Mario Andretti as a special guest, presenting the prestigious award to 2022 Cup Series champion Joey Logano. The event was further adorned with enthralling performances by musician Erin Kinsey.
