Country music singer Jake Owen will perform a pre-race concert at the Daytona 500. Owen will take the stage ahead of the 61st running of the “Great American Race” at Daytona International Speedway on February 17.
Owen follows a long list of famed singers to perform before NASCAR’s season opener and most prestigious race. The pre-race concert began with Mariah Carey in 2003 and has since featured Brian Wilson, Bon Jovi, Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Lenny Kravitz, Luke Bryan and Kid Rock. Rascal Flatts performed last year. Other pre-race celebrities yet to be announced include the national anthem singer, the grand marshal and the honorary starter.
