"The Tellys honor outstanding local, regional and cable commercial and video productions throughout the country," said Grand-Am President Roger Edmondson. "This is a very respectable recognition of achievement. It definitely got our Mid-Ohio race weekend off to a great start."

Grand-Am won three Bronze Telly Awards in the Commercial Category, for the "Voices" campaigns using the following drivers: Patrick Dempsey/Joe Foster, Kelly Collins and Alex Gurney; Joao Barbosa, JC France and Max Angelelli; Eric Lux, Burt/Brian Frisselle and Darren Law/David Donohue.
