This is all based on the races I only got to watch this year.

Nascar Sprint Cup:

Driver of the Year: Brad Keselowski
Team of the Year: Penske Racing
Reject of the Year: A.J. Allmendinger
Reject Team of the Year: American Israel Racing (How could anyone forget about them?) Laughing
Turn-around Driver: Brian Vickers (had a chance or two at winning races, proved that he deserved a full-time ride).
Best Race: August Bristol
Worst Race: Fontana
Hardest Hit: Danica crashing the inside wall in the Gatorade Duels.
Best Finish: Watkins Glen
Biggest Screwjob: Jeff Gordon's luck (although what happened towards the end was of his own doing).
ROFL Moment: Montoya crashing into the jet dryer (obviously).

Nascar Nationwide:

Driver of the Year: Cuppie-Logano, Nationwide Regular-Stenhouse
Team of the Year: Can't really think of one.
Reject of the Year: Danica Patrick (the results says it all).
Reject Team of the Year: Rick Ware Racing
Turn-around Driver: Johanna Long
Best Race: Any road course race.
Worst Race: Almost any cookie cutter track on the schedule.
Hardest Hit: Eric McClure
Best Finish: February Daytona race.
Biggest Screwjob: Logano taking wins from drivers that actually deserved to win a race.
ROFL Moment: A stalled car rolling down the track at Michigan under caution/red flag.

Nascar Trucks: I haven't really watched enough truck races to know who deserves rejects, driver of the year, etc.

Indycar:

Driver of the Year: Ryan Hunter-Reay
Team of the Year: Andretti Autosport
Reject of the Year: Takuma Sato/Will Power
Reject Team of the Year: Dragon Racing (Because of what happened with Jay Penske).
Turn-around Driver: Ryan Hunter-Reay (No one expected him to do what he did this year).
Best Race: Texas (Probably one of the better ICS oval races I've seen in a long while).
Worst Race: Belle Isle (Because of the track screwing things up).
Hardest Hit: Ed Carpenter on Pole Day
Best Finish: Fontana
Biggest Screwjob: Lotus
ROFL Moment: Dario's engine blowing up before the initial start of the race.

F1:

Driver of the Year: Kimi Raikkonen (if he can finish 3rd in the driver's championship in his first year back in F1 in Lotus, I expect him to do big things next year).
Team of the Year: Red Bull
Reject of the Year: Pastor Maldonado (despite winning a race).
Reject Team of the Year: HRT
Turn-around Driver: Sergio Perez
Best Race: U.S. Grand Prix
Worst Race: Indian Grand Prix (I don't think anyone had to be awake to know that it wasn't exciting).
Hardest Hit: Start of the Spa
Best Finish: The best one I can think of is 2nd Spanish G.P. race.
Biggest Screwjob: Grosjean wrecking almost half the field at Spa.
ROFL Moment: Kimi getting lost at Interlagos

Other: I'll just leave some videos of moments to take note of in the spoiler section.

Spoiler:
Tyler Walker (Last year's Kings Royal winner. I don't think much needs to be said about his temper and why he burned his chance of being in NASCAR):


Justin Thomas (Some of you will remember this wreck):


Some good sprint car, dirt track action at Eldora:


I'll try to find more interesting videos.

Nascar Sprint Cup:

Driver of the Year: Brad Keselowski (toe to toe with 5-time and he came out on top). This one goes without saying.
Team of the Year: Penske Racing. Only competitive Dodge team in Cup and they win the championship.
Reject of the Year: Jeff Gordon. This one I need to explain. I give Jeff this because of the move at Phoenix. It's the only real reject moment that sticks out to me for this year.
Reject Team of the Year: Front Row Motorsports. Had to give it to a backmarker team.
Turn-around Driver: Kasey Kahne. From where Kasey started the year to where he finished, he gets this title in my book.
Best Race: Bristol and I know I'm going to catch crap for it. But, this is for overall race, not for one or two laps.
Worst Race: Homestead. Just didn't have the excitement that I was hoping for. Not like last year.
Hardest Hit: Danica Patrick at Daytona in the Duels. Yes we had some flips this year, but this is hard hit not crash of the year.
Best Finish: Ambrose over Keselowski at the Glen. Nothing more needs to be said.
Biggest Screwjob: Jeff Gordon at Martinsville. There is no question Gordon had the best car at the end of the race and would've won it had the #10 not drawn the yellow.
ROFL Moment: JPM vs the jetdryer at Daytona. Hands down the ROFL moment of the Cup season. Of course, this is after we knew everyone was ok.

Nascar Nationwide:

Driver of the Year: Ricky Stenhouse Jr. Back-to-back title kind of constitutes this.
Team of the Year: Joe Gibbs Racing. Yeah, yeah, yeah, say what you want on this.
Reject of the Year: Amber Cope at New Hampshire. Cost a guy a shot a win. Yeah, definitely a reject moment.
Reject Team of the Year: I'm not sure on this.
Turn-around Driver: Again can't really say.
Best Race: Daytona. I mean come on. The guy in 11th place going into turn 3 on the last lap wins? Yeah this wins.
Worst Race: Not sure.
Hardest Hit: Eric McClure at Talladega. Goes without saying.
Best Finish: Not sure.
Biggest Screwjob: Elliot Sadler at Indy. Goes without saying.
ROFL Moment: Daytona. Again the 11th place car on the last lap going into turn 3 wins.

Other: (Anything other series really)

Best Race: NHRA Pro Stock Final in Thundervalley. Watch it and you'll see why.
Best Finish: Refer to above answer. Easily the best finish of the year period.
