NASCAR has announced that VALORY MUSIC CO./STARSTRUCK artist REBA McENTIRE will serve as the host for the 2011 NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES AWARDS CEREMONY on DECEMBER 2nd at WYNN LAS VEGAS.
The ceremony honors the 2011 NASCAR SPRINT CUP champion and other drivers who finished in the top 10 of the final series standings.
In addition to her host duties, REBA will perform the song “Turn on the Radio.” Other special segments involving REBA also are planned for the season-ending celebration that will be broadcast by SPEED, SIRIUSXM NASCAR RADIO and MRN RADIO from the WYNN’s LAFITE BALLROOM.
“Since we moved the awards ceremony to LAS VEGAS, we’ve really increased our focus on the entertainment value for those in attendance and our fans watching and listening at home,” said NASCAR Chairman/CEO BRIAN FRANCE. “Having REBA at our show reflects that; she is unbelievably popular, with wide-reaching mainstream appeal. And of course, we also like the fact that she’s a fan of auto racing.”
“I’m delighted to be hosting the NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES AWARDS this year,” REBA said. “Country Music and NASCAR have shared fans for many years so I’ll feel right at home. My family and I have gotten to meet so many nice people in the racing industry this year with my youngest son, Shelby, being one of the competitors. We appreciate so much the super hospitality.”
Other entertainment-related announcements regarding the awards ceremony are expected in the near future.
