NASCAR Champion’s Week to Return in Nashvile

The formal NASCAR postseason awards returns to Nashville's Music City Center on Nov. 29 - 30.

NASCAR Champion’s Week is set to race back into downtown Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 29 and Thursday, Nov. 30.

It will mark the fourth year the event has been at the Music City Center, with the first year being 2019 and the 2020 event being canceled due to COVID-19.

This marks the 75th anniversary for Champion’s Week, which culminates with the honoring of the NASCAR Cup Series, Xfinity Series and Craftsman Truck Series champions.

For the first time, NASCAR will also recognize the champions from the NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, ARCA Menards Series, ARCA Menards Series East, ARCA Menards Series West and NASCAR International Series on Nov. 28 in Nashville.

“As we continue to commemorate our diamond anniversary, there is no other place we’d rather return for our end of the year celebration than Music City,” NASCAR senior vice president and chief marketing officer Pete Jung said. “We are ecstatic to bring Champion’s Week back to Nashville for a fourth year. The energy of this city never goes unnoticed and the fans’ dedication for our sport never fails.”

New fan activations

On Nov. 29 NASCAR will initiate two new fan activations, NASCAR House and NASCAR Champion Car Parade. NASCAR House will take place in Music City Center from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. The NASCAR Champion Car Parade will be on Broadway from 2:30–3:30 p.m. More details will become available on both events in the coming weeks.

Last year, NASCAR honored Cup Series champion Joey Logano, Xfinity Series champion Ty Gibbs and Craftsman Truck Series champion Zane Smith.

The formal postseason awards is a tradition that stretches back to 1981, when the event took place in New York City. It relocated to Las Vegas in 2009 and then to Nashville in 2019.

Over the last three years NASCAR has seen a large turnout from the Nashville fans not only at Nashville Superspeedway for the Ally 400, but for Champion’s Week.
