NASCAR Media Group Wins Fourth Sports Emmy In Last Six Years

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

as follows:

2006 – Beyond the Wheel, SPEED

2007 – Quest for the Cup, Voom HD

2009 – Inside the Headsets, SPEED
