Salem, IN – After a very successful 2015 Awards Banquet, Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS officials have already lined up a return visit to downtown Indianapolis and the Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown at Union Station, for the 2016 Champion Racing Association Powered by JEGS Awards Banquet. The event will take place on Friday, January 6th, 2017, honoring the top 10 teams in 2016 points from the ARCA/CRA Super Series Powered by JEGS, the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance, the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman Powered by JEGS and the CRA Street Stocks Powered by JEGS. The Lyons Truck & Trailer LOR Challenge Points Champion with the Vore’s Welding CRA Late Model Sportsman will also be honored at the 2016 CRA Awards Banquet.


“The last three Awards Banquets were such great successes, that we went right to work to secure the same venue for the 2016 Awards Banquet,” remarked R.J. Scott, Managing Partner with CRA. “We are very happy to keep the CRA Awards Banquet in exciting downtown Indy and back to the elegant Crowne Plaza Indianapolis. We look forward to celebrating the 2016 season with all our award winners!”


The Crowne Plaza Indianapolis Downtown is conveniently located at 123 W. Louisiana St at the historic Union Station. Union Station still operates as an active train station. The muffled rumblings of trains regularly passing through ads to the ambiance of staying in the hotel. Whether you’re lodging in an authentic Pullman train car guest room or a spacious suite, their guests enjoy fabulous perks, such as free Internet access, room service, Fitness and Business Centers, an indoor pool and the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage® program. The 2016 Awards Banquet will take place in the beautiful Grand Hall again. Additional information on the banquet and sleeping rooms will be released later in the year.
