Nominations now open for the 2024 Comcast Community Champion of the Year

(CTN News) – Nominations for the 2024 Comcast Community Champion of the Year are now open at through June 10, 2024.

For the past 10 years, this award has recognized the philanthropic efforts of NASCAR fans. With its contributions to previous winners and finalists, Comcast surpassed the $1,000,000 mark last year.

In 2015, the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award was created to honor NASCAR members who are selflessly giving to improve their communities. A panel of three finalists will be selected by Comcast and their stories will be shared publicly. After the finalists have been selected, a committee of NASCAR and executives, including 2023 winner Ryan Vargas, will award $60,000 to the champion’s affiliated charity and $30,000 to each of the two finalists’ charities later this year as the Community Champion of the Year.

As part of Comcast’s commitment to inspiring change, Matt Lederer, vice president of Brand Partnerships, said, “We are honored to recognize individuals within the NASCAR family who go above and beyond to support their local communities.”

NASCAR’s top-three national series is eligible to nominate any individual with a 2024 annual credential or full-season license, including:

  • Owners, drivers, and employees of NASCAR Cup Series, NASCAR Xfinity Series, and NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series

  • NASCAR’s three series currently schedule full-time employees at their tracks

  • Print, Broadcast, or Photography NASCAR Media members

  • A NASCAR official

  • Partners and sponsors of NASCAR

  • Drivers and crew members’ families

  • Staff members (drivers, agents, managers, etc.)

  • Personnel in the engine building, parts and service industries.

Through the program, Comcast has donated to 27 different nonprofit organizations, enabling all finalists and champions to continue their philanthropic work.
