AARWBA board members represent a cross-section of news media.
Each year the AARWBA members select a 7-driver All America Team from Open Wheel, Stock Car, Sports Car, Drag Racing, Short Track, Touring Series and At Large championship categories. The driver receiving the most votes is presented the "Jerry Titus Memorial Award�," which is AARWBA's "Driver of the Year" award. Jerry Titus was a member of AARWBA who was a motor sports journalist and a winning race driver.
AARWBA also presents Special Awards to honor those who have made special contributions to motor sports.
The Association presents the Angelo Angelopolous Sportsmanship Award at Indianapolis in May. Another award, given when merited, is the "Comeback Driver of the Year," which goes to the driver who comes back from adversity to race again.
AARWBA has established the Legends in Racing Auto Racing Hall of Fame, to honor those who have made motor racing one of the largest spectator sports in America.

Categories are for written, broadcast, web sites, online and photographic work. Entries are judged by an independent panel from a major journalism school. The winners represent a true testament to the growth of the sport of auto racing.
