NASCAR could move awards banquet from Las Vegas

After nine years in Las Vegas, the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Awards could change locations this year.

With no firm contract as yet for this season to remain in Las Vegas, NASCAR has been exploring several options for the end-of-the-season celebratory event, multiple sources confirmed to Motorsport.com.

Sources said Charlotte, N.C, and Nashville, Tenn., are among the destinations most seriously considered should the event move.

NASCAR already hosts its touring and home track awards in Charlotte and last season added its Xfinity and Truck awards to run the same weekend. Charlotte hosts two Cup series race weekends each year in addition to the annual NASCAR All-Star Race.

The event could also remain in Las Vegas, for this season only, or several years if another contract is signed.
