Spring is upon us, folks, and that means but one thing: Awards Season.

To kick things off this year Dave Laden’s NBC NASCAR spot “America, Start Your Engines” has been nominated for an Emmy at the 37th annual Sports Emmy Awards. He is nominated in the Outstanding Sports Promotional Announcement category. Competition is stiff this year but when you team Dave Laden up with Nick Offerman and toss a little homemade Jerry Reed-esque ditty in there, we’re certain Dave and NBC will be taking home the gold.

Well done, Mr. Laden!
