For the third straight year, NASCAR will host its Champion’s Week celebration in Nashville on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

Drivers, industry personalities and celebrities will take over downtown Nashville to celebrate an unforgettable 2022 season. The NASCAR Awards will be held at the Music City Center to formally crown this season’s NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champions.

“We are pleased to announce our return to Music City for the celebration to crown our series champions,” says Pete Jung, SVP, Chief Marketing Officer at NASCAR. “We are delighted to bring the celebration to Nashville once again, as the city’s energy and passion for motorsports never ceases to amaze us. We are looking forward to being back following the conclusion of the 2022 season.”

This season, 2020 NASCAR champion Chase Elliott took home the Ally 400 win at the Nashville Superspeedway, punching his ticket to the Cup Series Playoffs. Last year, Kyle Larson won the first annual Ally 400 and went on to win the 2021 NASCAR Championship.

The formal postseason awards is a tradition that stretches back to 1981 when the event was held in New York City. It relocated to Las Vegas in 2009 and then called Nashville its home for the first time in 2019.

Over the last two years NASCAR has seen a tremendous turnout from the Nashville fans, not only at the racetrack, but for the celebration of Champion’s week. NASCAR looks to continue the tradition and conclude the season in one of the most iconic cities in the country.
