INDIANAPOLIS, IN – July 7, 2022 – (Motor Sports NewsWire) – NHRA and its broadcasting team was recently honored with six prestigious Telly awards for video excellence during the 2021 season and the beginning of the 2022 campaign. The team has now been recognized with 25 Telly awards over the past eight years.
The Telly Awards honor excellence in video and television across all screens. Of the six overall awards, NHRA was bestowed four Silver Tellys, as the entire NHRA on FOX crew was honored in the General Television category for the Pep Boys NHRA Top Fuel All-Star Callout show that was featured on FOX in March. That show also earned a Bronze Telly in the General Sports category.
“We are fortunate to have a team in place that is this talented to give us the opportunity to deliver the best drag racing coverage for fans,” NHRA Senior Director of Production Rob Hedrick said. “It’s exciting to see the team’s hard work rewarded by our peers in the industry.”
Other Silver Telly awards came in the Television Live Events category for the entire crew’s work on the DeWalt NHRA Carolina Nationals broadcast on FOX, along with the Leviathans of Corn and Sand Las Vegas Fall Show Open in the Television Show Opening Segment category. Brian Lohnes, Lauren Adams, and Steve Reintjes were all recognized for that award.
In the Television Show Opening Segment, a feature from Lohnes, Reintjes and Hedrick entitled “They Drag Racing in New England?” also earned a Silver Telly. Hedrick and NHRA also won a Bronze Telly in the Television Craft-Motion Graphics/Design category.
The Telly Awards was founded in 1979 to honor excellence in local, regional, and cable television commercials with non-broadcast video and television programming added soon after. With the recent evolution and rise of digital video (web series, VR, 360, and beyond), the Telly Awards today also reflects and celebrates this exciting new era of the moving image online and offline.
The Telly Awards annually showcases the best work created within television and across video, for all screens. Receiving more than 12,000 entries from all 50 states and five continents, Telly Award winners represent work from some of the most respected advertising agencies, television stations, production companies, and publishers from around the world.
