Monday, Feb. 06, 2012
Carl Edwards and Trevor Bayne, race winners in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, could soon add Dance Machine and Gnarliest Newb to their respective resumes.
Edwards and Bayne have been nominated as part of Cartoon Networks second annual Hall of Game Awards program, which airs Monday, Feb. 20 at 7 p.m. ET. Five-time Cup Series champion and 2011 Dance Machine nominee Jimmie Johnson will also present The Worlds Fastest Award in a cameo appearance.
The show, hosted by former NBA star Shaquille ONeal, is a high-energy, off-the-wall, multiplatform experience that lets viewers vote and honor their favorite sports stars and sports moments of the year.
Edwards and Bayne have been nominated to compete in the Dance Machine and Gnarliest Newb categories.
Edwards signature victory celebration, a backflip from his car, catapulted him to be a finalist in the Dance Machine category. Baynes improbable Daytona 500 victory as a 20-year-old in only his second Cup start propelled him to compete in what is essentially the Rookie of the Year category in this years awards.
