Gentlemen Start Your Engines
[lastfm link_type=""]Brad Paisley [/lastfm]will help to get your motor running in the [lastfm link_type=""]Daytona 500[/lastfm] next weekend in a couple of different ways.
The [lastfm link_type=""]CMA Entertainer of the Year[/lastfm] will perform a couple of songs prior to the start of the 53rd annual race, the season-opener for the [lastfm link_type=""]NASCAR Sprint Cup Series[/lastfm]. Brad will be joining a list of star-studded artists who have performed at the Daytona 500 before, including [lastfm link_type=""]Tim McGraw[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=""]Brooks and Dunn[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=""]Keith Urban[/lastfm], and others.
So what kind of car will he be behind the wheel of on race day? I’m glad you asked. Brad will driving the official pace car–a Chevrolet Camaro SS–for the start of the Race at Daytona on Sunday, February 20th. Both the pre-race and Daytona 500 will be broadcast live on FOX, beginning at 12:00 PM ET (the race begins at 1:00 PM ET).
