NASCAR cancels Cup Series awards, citing COVID-19 uncertainty

By The Associated Press

NASCAR may be racing during the coronavirus pandemic. Celebrating in early December now is off the schedule.

The motorsports series has canceled its Champion’s Week and Cup Series awards scheduled for early December in Nashville, citing the uncertainty from the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the industry. NASCAR moved Champion’s Week to Nashville in 2019 from Las Vegas.

NASCAR still plans to celebrate its champions from the Xfinity Series to the truck series and promises details to come. And NASCAR says the series looks forward to returning to Nashville in 2021.
