Rating the Fashion at the Nascar Awards

Updated on December 7, 2015

Red Carpet

The Nascar banquet is a time for drivers and their families to come to celebrate the new champion and the end of the season. Before the ceremony, the drivers walked the red carpet and while they looked dapper in their suits, it was the wives who stole the show.

The wives went all out and eyes were on them as they walked the carpet with the husbands. Some of the wives hit it out of the park, while others not so much.

Let's take a look at some of the wives and their dress choices.

(This is my opinion of the dress choices, if you disagree with my choices please be respectful when making comments).

Ingrid Vandebosch


Okay, I may be a bit partial to Ingrid since she's the wife of my favorite driver. But in my opinion, Ingrid was one of the best dressed of the night. Her fashion is amazing and she knocks it out of the park with her dresses. Out of all the banquet dresses she's worn, this is my favorite. Her sparkly gown, complete with diamond jewelry and hair made her look like a queen as she celebrated her husband's last banquet.

Samantha Busch


Samantha is another Nascar wife, who has great fashion sense. Although, it was Kyle's night to celebrate his championship win, Samantha stole the show with her dress. Green is a perfect color choice for her and I loved the way the top of the dress fitted her perfectly, the updo and jewelry complimented the dress beautifully. My only critique is I thought the train was a little long, but other than that this was another hit for Samantha.

Sometimes simple is best, just ask Lorra Bowyer. Lorra's a wife who isn't know for going over the top glam and I think that fits best with her. Her blue dress was a good fit for her and I loved the gold bangle and earrings, they meshed well with the dress. Her makeup and hair was great and the flowered clutch added a nice touch to her outfit.

Like Lorra Bowyer, Katie Kenseth is known for keeping it simple. Her white gown was the perfect mix of simplicity and elegance, she could almost pass as a Winter Wonderland princess. The flowered clutch was cute, but I would've done without the scarf or whatever it was draped over her arm. Also, I would've loved to seen her incorporate more jewelry into her outfit instead of just having the necklace.

Kurt Busch's fiancee made her red carpet debut at the Nascar Awards and she helped divert the attention away from Kurt's suit (what the heck was he thinking wearing that?). Ashley looked like a starlet in her red dress with black sequin overlay. She kept the jewelry to a minimum, wearing only her engagement ring. With this dress, I don't think any added jewelry was necessary since the dress took center stage.

Amy Reimann


Dale Jr's fiancee is known to have more of a Bohemian style and this year she choose a tye dye dress. I loved the mixture of colors of the dress and how it had a flowy feel to it. I liked the shoes, but I didn't think they worked with the dress, I would've loved to have seen her in metallic heels. Also, I wasn't a fan of the black belt and purse, they didn't work with her outfit.

Delana Harvick


I had mixed feelings on this dress. On the one hand, it's different and I love the mixture of the blue, red, and black colors. However, I think the print would have worked on a shorter dress instead of long one. This isn't as up to par as Delana's previous banquet dresses, but I think it fits her simplistic style.

Chandra Johnson


Chandra's style has been hit and miss over the years, and I have to say this dress is a miss. The top part of the dress is fine, but the floral skirt is what killed it for me. The black lace with floral print skirt wasn't a good match. If the dress didn't have the floral skirt, I would've given her higher marks, but because of it I'm afraid I'm going to have to give her a low grade.

Who was the best dressed at the awards banquet?
