2016 NHRA Southeast
Awards Ceremonies

JANUARY 14, 2017

JEKYLL ISLAND CONVENTION CENTER
JEKYLL ISLAND, GEORGIA


 


 

What better way to kick off the 2017 NHRA Championship Racing season that to spend a family day at the beach for the NHRA Southeast Awards Ceremonies.  Spend Saturday, January 14th at beautiful Jekyll Island, Georgia with your racing family.  A new class of Hall Of Fame Inductees including Rickie Smith, Ed Swearingen, Scotty McLendon, and John Labbous Sr. will be honored along with all the champions from the 2016 NHRA Southeast Racing Season.

This is not your typical boring racing banquet.  This is big.  This is special.  This is fun. You've got to go at least once.  And once you go, you've got to come back.  Spend January 14th with your racing family and friends.  Book your tickets NOW.

The festivities officially kick off at 5:30pm with the Hall Of Fame Reception at the Jekyll Island Convention Center, just off the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. Then a fantastic dinner service at 6:30 with lots of door prizes and giveaways.  After dinner, the awards start and last approximately 2-3 hours.  It’s the best show you can see on a Saturday night.  When the awards are over and the pictures are taken, the party moves next door to McGarvey’s Pub and continues untill they shut us down.

Experience fine dining at 27 various restaurants on the Island from coffee at Uncle Vance’s to pizza at Red Bug Motors or great steaks and seafood at Latitude 31.  Enjoy some old world history over a cocktail at The Lobby Bar at the Jekyll Island Club Hotel.
 
Take the kids to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, or enjoy horseback riding around the island.  There’s 63 holes of golf to fill your day, or for those with a horrible tee shot you can go to the Miniature Golf course next door. Take a cruise on the Emerald Princess Casino, just north of Jekyll Island.  Whatever your interest, there’s something to be discovered at Jekyll Island for kids and adults.
