DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Aug. 13, 2009) - The Grand-Am KONI Sports Car Challenge will hold its 2009 awards banquet Monday, Oct. 12, 2009, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla.

The banquet will be held in conjunction with year-end festivities for the Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series presented by Crown Royal Cask No. 16.

"Our goal of combining the events is to offer a first class awards ceremony for all of our champion drivers across both of our series," said Kevin Hindson, Grand-Am Vice President of Marketing and Communications.

The KONI Sports Car Challenge Series will conclude its 11-race 2009 season Oct. 2-3 for both the Grand Sport and Street Tuner classes at Virginia International Raceway.

The Rolex Champions Banquet presented by SunTrust will begin with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by a sit-down dinner and awards program, which will honor the top drivers, teams and manufacturers in both the KONI Sports Car Challenge and Rolex Sports Car Series. Fans will also be invited to purchase tickets for the event.

KONI announced it will provide the top three drivers in each class with complimentary rooms and invite the top-five teams in each class as their special guests at one of the tables that have been reserved by KONI.

"I am very excited about being able to award our champions at such a wonderful facility and event," said Jim Vance, General Manager of KONI. "I look forward to having a memorable time with our families of teams and drivers."
