lg_LukeBryan

This year’s DAYTONA 500 Pre-Race Show, Feb 23, will play host to 2013′s ACM Entertainer of the year, Luke Bryan!

“We’re thrilled to have a talented artist such as Luke Bryan perform prior to the start of the Daytona 500,” Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III said. “We’re expecting Luke to put on an exhilarating show that will energize our race fans as we kick off the new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season.”

Bryan will join a prestigious list of prior performers for this kick off Budweiser Pre-Race Show including Zac Brown Band, Lenny Kravitz, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Bon Jovi.

He will be performing several of his hits on pit road of the “World Center of Racing” that will be accessible to all NASCAR fans who purchase the Pre-Race/Sprint FANZONE access pass for the DAYTONA 500. Luke’s recently released studio album, Crash My Party, offered us the bona fide hits “Crash My Party,” “Drink a Beer” and “That’s My Kind of Night”, which are sure to make it into the show. Crash My Party has sold over a million copies and earned Bryan the much deserved honor of being named both Academy of Country Music Awards’ Entertainer of the Year and American Music Awards Favorite Country Male Artist.

Also, a special ticket package has been designed around Bryan that includes a DAYTONA 500 grandstand ticket, Pre-Race/Sprint FANZONE access and VIP area access to the performance. Full packages start at $164 and fans that already have race tickets can add Pre-Race/Sprint FANZONE access along with VIP area access for $99. To purchase tickets for the 56th annual DAYTONA 500 and Sprint FANZONE/Pre-Race access, go online to daytonainternationalspeedway.com or call 1-800-PITSHOP.
