Speedway: New Headliner at Pre-Race Concert


by WCCB Charlotte

CONCORD, N.C. -- Charlotte Motor Speedway has just announced that a popular country singer will be performing before the NASCAR Spring All-Star Race.

Josh Turner, a double-platinum-selling singer-songwriter, will perform for fans before the 29th annual NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 18.

Billy Currington was originally scheduled to perform.

“Due to Currington’s recent indictment, we elected to change our act for the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race,” said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway.  “Josh Turner is a native of the Carolinas with six No. 1 hits to his credit, and we know he’ll put on a fantastic show for our fans and sponsors on race weekend.”

Turner will perform a 90-minute concert.

For just $99, fans can get a NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race weekend pass, which includes a frontstretch ticket to both the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and the North Carolina Education Lottery 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race as well as a free scanner rental. Tickets can be purchased by calling the speedway ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267) or online at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com
