2023 NMCA Awards Ceremony Photo Gallery
Each December the NMCA crowns its champions and presents special awards with a ceremony celebrating the achievements and accomplishments from the racing season. And 2023 was no different, as hundreds gathered for an evening of fun in Indianapolis during the Performance Racing Industry show.
Emcee for the event was renowned Fox TV broadcaster and race announcer Brian Lohnes, who served as master of ceremonies. Class sponsors had the opportunity to present each of the championship categories winners their awards, and the top 10 in each category were celebrated as well.
Along with the champions, NMRA also presented special awards for Driver of the Year, Bob Curran Sportsman of the Year, Ambassador of the Year, Track of the Year and the coveted Sandy Turk Crew Member of the Year. Additionally, Gene Bergstrom, NMRA/NMCA Senior Director of Racing Operations, announced his retirement after a 40-plus year career in the drag racing and was recognized for his years of service.
