AARWBA ALL-AMERICA TEAM DINNER MOVES TO INDY DEC. 3; WILL CONCLUDE 50th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
INDIANAPOLIS -- The American Auto Racing Writers and Broadcasters Association recently announced its 36th consecutive All-America Team dinner, honoring the top drivers from various series, will be Saturday night, Dec. 3, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. The event will officially conclude the 50th Anniversary Celebration for AARWBA, the country's oldest and largest organization of motorsports media professionals.
This is a change for AARWBA, which for several years has staged the dinner in California in January.
The All-America Team is selected by vote of AARWBA members and includes stock car, open wheel, drag racing, short track, road racing, touring series and at-large categories. The top vote-getter is honored with the Jerry Titus Memorial Trophy, which was won by IRL champion Tony Kanaan in 2004.
Other highlights will include a visual tribute to AARWBA's 50 years and presentation of the Jim Chapman Public Relations Award and Bob Russo Founders Award as well as several surprise announcements. The dinner will be staged in the Hyatt's atrium, providing a colorful and festive holiday setting.
