NASCAR’s triple-header weekend from June 18-20 at the Nashville Superspeedway has added Platinum-selling country artist Luke Combs, Gospel legend CeCe Winans, and up and coming singer Priscilla Block to an already star-packed lineup.
Winans, a twelve-time Grammy winning singer who has sold over 5 million records, will be offering the invocation at Sunday’s (June 20) sold-out Ally 400 race representing Life Church Nashville. Meanwhile, Combs will get to say the most famous words in motorsports as the grand marshal for the Ally 400. Block, a 25-year-old Universal Music Group Nashville recording artist, will sing the national anthem for Sunday’s race.
As previously announced, Grand Ole Opry member Chris Janson will be performing the pre-race concert on Sunday and will be joined by country music legend John Anderson. Country singer and Tennessee native Brandon Lay will perform the national anthem prior to Saturday’s (June 19) Tennessee Lottery 250 Xfinity Series races. Local singer and winner of the fan voted “NASHCAR Superstar” Sweepstakes, Brenna Bone will also perform the national anthem before the Rackley Roofing 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race on Friday night (June 18.)
The race weekend will also feature local sports figures on top of the country music talent. Nine-year NFL veteran and former member of the Tennessee Titans from 2013-14, Brendan Pollard, will wave the green flag as the Honorary Starter for the Ally 400 on Sunday. Shea Ralph, a seven-time national champion and current Vanderbilt University head women’s basketball coach, will serve as the Honorary Starter for the Tennessee Lottery 250 on Saturday.
