Despite taking place, fans were unable to view the awards ceremony live.

It is because the NASCAR awards banquet TV coverage will be shown on tape delay.

When will it be shown?

The awards banquet themselves form part of a double offering of NASCAR for fans on Saturday 4th, December.

On Wednesday night in downtown Nashville, the Cup drivers took their machines out on Broadway to entertain the crowds.

It featured Brad Keselowski in Team Penske machinery for the final time.

2012 Cup champion Keselowski is leaving Penske for pastures new at the renamed Roush Fenway Keselowski Racing, which he is part owner.

Highlights of the burnouts and crowd-pleasing display will be broadcast first, before the awards banquet.

Both events will fill a two-hour time slot on NBCSN.

The programme begins at 7:00pm ET on December 4th, with it scheduled to end at 9pm ET.
