Drivers who make the sweetest moves throughout all 33 races across the ARCA Menards Series platform in 2021 will have another opportunity to celebrate their on-track prowess when the season concludes with the Reese’s Sweet Move of the Year competition, which will take place over a two-week period in November and December on the official ARCA Twitter page (@ARCA_Racing).
The top 32 Reese’s Sweet Move of the Race award winners will be seeded into brackets according to the vote totals they received from fans who participated throughout the year. Any ties will be awarded to the winner who received the higher percentage of votes.
Much like the college basketball tournament, the highest seed (1) will matchup against the lowest seed (32), then the No. 2 seed will matchup against the No. 31 seed, and so on. There will be four matchups per day throughout the first round, which will run from Nov. 8-11. The winners will move on to the round of 16, which will take place with two matchups per day from Nov. 15-18.
The winners then will move into the round of eight, with two matchups per day from Nov. 22-23. The semifinal rounds will take place, one match-up per day on Nov. 29-30, with the winners moving to the final round on Dec. 2.
The winner of the 2021 Reese’s Sweet Move of the Year Award will receive a cash award from Reese’s, while a select number of fans who follow @ARCA_Racing on Twitter, participate in and retweet the voting will receive prize packs of Reese’s peanut butter cups candy.
“This is an award we’re really excited about, because it celebrates some of the best racing of the year and is directly voted on by our fans,” ARCA president Ron Drager said. “We’ve seen some incredible moments this year, like Max Gutierrez’s three-wide pass for the win in the ARCA Menards Series East race at New Smyrna Speedway to Chandler Smith’s amazing save in the ARCA Menards Series race at Pocono Raceway.
“We’re all excited to see how the brackets form up and to let our fans choose who made the sweetest move of the year. And the best part is just by voting and retweeting you are automatically entered in a drawing to receive a prize pack from Reese’s. It’s going to be a lot of fun to see how this plays out.”
Fans can log on to @ARCA_Racing on Twitter at 9 a.m. ET on the day following each race across the ARCA Menards Series platform to cast their votes for the Reese’s Sweet Move of the Race.
