As NASCAR comes to New York City to cap another season and crown the 2007 NASCAR Series Champions, Sirius Satellite Radio is providing listeners with access to the week's events, press conferences and parties - including the 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Awards Ceremony.
Starting on Wednesday, November 28th, during NASCAR's "Victory Lap" festivities in Times Square, Sirius will take listeners live inside Sirius on-air host Tony Stewart's #20 car as he and nine other drivers navigate their 850hp cars in a procession around midtown Manhattan.
The live cut-in will be part of the Sirius NASCAR Radio (ch 128) show "The Morning Drive," hosted by Marty Snider and David Poole. Snider and Poole will broadcast live from the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square from 7am - 11am ET Wednesday, where they will interview the NASCAR Chase drivers after they complete their "Victory Lap."
Then on Thursday, November 29th, Dave Moody will host "Sirius Speedway" live from the Aflac Fan Fest at the Hard Rock Cafe (3pm - 6pm ET) on Sirius NASCAR Radio.
Immediately following Sirius Speedway, Tony Stewart and Matt Yocum will announce the winners of the inaugural "Stewie Awards" during a special broadcast of "Tony Stewart Live" at Sirius' NYC studios (6pm ET).
On Friday, November 30th, Sirius will broadcast live from the Hard Rock Cafe hosted by 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Rookie of the Year Juan Pablo Montoya, Chip Ganassi, owner of Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, and Sirius host and AP writer Jenna Fryer (11am ET on Sirius NASCAR Radio). Ganassi Racing driver Dario Franchitti, the 2007 IndyCar Series champion who will compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2008, will be a guest on the program.
On Friday night, Sirius' coverage will include a live broadcast of the 2007 NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series Awards Ceremony at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York (7pm ET), where 2007 champion Jimmie Johnson will be feted among the sport's elite drivers.
