NEW YORK, NY, May 10, 2017 – Fox Sports ‘Daytona Day’ picked up a Sports Emmy award for Outstanding Sports Promotional Announcement at the 38th Annual Sports Emmy Awards last night at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City. The Daytona Day anthem, produced by Pereira & O'Dell and directed by Joseph Kahn, originally premiered Sunday during the National Football Conference (NFC) Championship game on FOX.
‘Daytona Day’ is aimed at the social aspect of celebrating "Daytona Day" with family and friends, kicking off the 2016 NASCAR season. It's the most anticipated moment in racing and one of the great scenes in all of sports.
The spot was a significant first for both Fox Sports and Pereira & O’Dell by creating an official holiday for The Great American Race known as the Daytona 500. Daytona Day beat out three nominees in the category including: “Games of the XXXI Olympiad” for NBC Tomorrow In Rio, PBR “Built Ford Tough Series” for CBS Sports Network and Stanley Cup Playoffs – “Don't Miss a Moment” on NBCSN.
The Sports Emmy® Awards recognize outstanding achievement in sports television coverage. For over a quarter century, The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has presented the Emmy® as a reward for excellence in Sports broadcasting and as an incentive for its continued pursuit.
