Comcast recognizes members of the NASCAR community for charitable efforts with fourth annual award. Comcast announced the finalists for the 2018 Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award, an annual award created to recognize the philanthropic efforts of individuals within the NASCAR industry. Comcast’s Xfinity brand has been the entitlement sponsor of the NASCAR Xfinity Series since 2015.

The 2018 finalists are:

  • Joey Logano, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™ driver and founder of the Joey Logano Foundation
  • Ryan Newman, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series™ driver and co-founder of Rescue Ranch
  • Steve Page, President of Sonoma Raceway and board member of the Sonoma chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities

“One of Comcast’s most important pillars is re-investing in our local communities, and it has been incredible to see this come to life through our NASCAR partnership with the Comcast Community Champion of the Year Award,” said Matt Lederer, Executive Director of Partnership Marketing at Comcast. “This annual award, now in its fourth year, has given us a platform to highlight members of the NASCAR family who truly embody a generous and benevolent spirit.”

The 2018 Comcast Community Champion will be selected by a panel comprised of Comcast and NASCAR executives, as well as the Chip Ganassi Racing Pit Crew Department, which won the award in 2017 and will be represented by pit crew coach Mike Metcalf. Comcast will award $60,000 to the winner’s affiliated charity, and $30,000 on behalf of the two remaining finalists’ selected charities. The 2018 award winner will be announced on Thursday, Nov. 15 at W South Beach Hotel in Miami as part of NASCAR Championship Weekend.
