CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - From Charlotte Motor Speedway: Before drivers battle in the afternoon sun during the Oct. 8 Bank of America 500 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, stars will shine the night before at zMAX Dragway when award-winning country music singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer Brad Paisley lights up zMAX Dragway with a spectacular pre-race concert.
Paisley revs up his involvement in America's most high-octane sport with a rocking salute to race fans with hometown hero Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s JR Nation Appreci88ion Tour.
While Paisley and Earnhardt are prominent models of success in their chosen fields, fans who attend this year's Bank of America 500 will win big as well.
