2011 NASCAR Awards Banquet

December 3, 2011 by staff 

2011 NASCAR Awards Banquet, The 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Awards Ceremony was held on Friday night December 2nd at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. Tony Stewart was the headliner as he sat at the head table and picked up the third Championship of his career.
As expected there was a bunch of pre-banquet coverage. SPEED went on the air at 9:00 PM Eastern and spent an hour on the red carpet before they ever went inside.

I must admit though, that much of the time wasting was actually interesting. The “Speedy Awards” were a lot of fun with Steve Byrne and Jeff Hammond. With categories like “Best Actor In a Comedy,” “Best Supporting Actress in a Drama” and many others the “Speedy Awards” provided an entertaining way to look back at the top stories of the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup season.

On the Red Carpet Rutledge was a bit rude to Dale Earnhardt Jr’s girlfriend. He asked her a question and then cut her off in the middle of her answer. Then he did it again with Chandra Johnson, Jimmie’s wife. I will assume that the director was in his ear telling him to cut it short but it made for a couple of awkward moments.

I know you’ve got a schedule to keep but those moments were bordering on rude.
