Tim Dugger set to perform at Talladega Superspeedway & Prelude to the Dream

TALLADEGA, Ala. – (April 30, 2012) – Curb recording artist Tim Dugger (@Tim_Dugger) has been chosen to sing the national anthem at this year’s “Prelude to the Dream” on Wednesday, June 6 at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio. The all-star dirt Late Model race will feature more than 25 world renowned drivers as they battle for dirt supremacy on the half-mile clay oval track.

“I’m honored to be chosen to sing the national anthem again at this event,” said Dugger, who sang the national anthem for the 2010 Prelude to the Dream. “This is an opportunity for the stars and fans of kinds of motorsports to come together to raise money for this wonderful cause.”

Dugger’s racing connections run deep. Touring clubs along the NASCAR circuit for years, he has amassed a loyal following of race fans, drivers, and crew chiefs – even his video for “Sunday Drive” features 2010 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Austin Dillon of Richard Childress Racing.
Dugger has also been added to the lineup for the May 5 Aaron’s Dream Weekend infield concert at Talladega Superspeedway, along with Rodney Atkins.

“Bringing in a talented and down-to-earth singer-songwriter like Tim Dugger to open up for an award-winning country star like Rodney Atkins gives the Aaron’s Dream Weekend a high-powered concert you’d pay big money to see anywhere else,” said Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “The loyal fans of Talladega Superspeedway and NASCAR deserve to be entertained in the biggest way, and we feel like we’ve done that this year.”

Dugger will play from 7-8 p.m. CDT on Saturday, May 5, and will be followed by Rodney Atkins at 8:30 p.m. Entry into the infield concert requires either a race ticket for the May 6 Aaron’s 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race or infield admission. Both can be purchased at www.talladegasuperspeedway.com or 1-877-Go2-DEGA.

Dugger says he writes music that “almost all can relate to,” as evidenced by his latest single, “Way Past My Beer Time” and his upcoming single, “God For A Day” both of which are now available on iTunes. For more information regarding Dugger, please visit www.timdugger.com
