GLENDORA, Calif. (Aug. 26, 2002) - National Hot Rod Association officials announced today that its 2002 awards ceremony will be held at the new Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

The NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Awards Ceremony, where the champions of the 2002 NHRA season will be crowned, will take place Monday, Nov. 11, at one of Southern California's premier entertainment facilities. Limited seating will be opened to the public. For the last two years the NHRA awards ceremony was held at The Universal Amphitheater in Universal City, Calif.

The Kodak Theatre opened in November of 2001 to rave reviews. The $94 million project serves as the host facility for the prestigious Academy Awards Ceremony, various concerts, live theatre acts and special events. The Kodak Theatre serves as an anchor for Los Angeles' new $567 million Hollywood & Highland destination site, and is operated by Anschutz Entertainment Group, one of the leading sports and entertainment presenters in the world.

Following the awards ceremony at the Kodak Theatre, the invitation-only gala will take place at The Highlands Hollywood, Los Angeles' newest upscale nightclub with catering provided by Wolfgang Puck. The 30,000 square foot venue spans two floors and has two outdoor patios with spectacular panoramic views of Hollywood and the L.A skyline.
