CHARLOTTE, N.C. (May 1, 2012) – NASCAR Media Group, the full-service video and digital production
company of NASCAR, last night received a Sports Emmy Award for “Inside the Headsets,” a television
program which aired on SPEED the night after the annual NASCAR Sprint Cup All-Star Race last May.
The win was the second in three years for “Inside the Headsets” and the fourth win overall in the last six
years in the “Outstanding Live Event Turnaround” category.
NASCAR Media Group was presented the award at the 33rd Annual Sports Emmy Awards at Frederick P.
Rose Hall in Lincoln Center in New York.
“Inside the Headsets,” which aired on SPEED on May 22, 2011, captured a wide array of all the action
that was the NASCAR Sprint All-Star race, including exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, in-car
communication, crew chief sound, exclusive interviews and even a rare glimpse inside NASCAR Race
Control with cameras embedded at the competition nerve center. The program aired less than 24 hours
following the conclusion of the race.
“We are extremely honored to be recognized for the hard work done by our team at NASCAR Media
Group and our partners at SPEED,” said Jay Abraham, COO of NASCAR Media Group. “Winning this
award for the fourth time in six years reflects that hard work and showcases the highly compelling content
of a show like ‘Inside the Headsets’ despite the turnaround time.”
This was NASCAR Media Group’s seventh straight nomination. The other three award-winning shows are
2006 – Beyond the Wheel, SPEED
2007 – Quest for the Cup, Voom HD
2009 – Inside the Headsets, SPEED
