JOHN RICH TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM PRIOR TO MONSTER ENERGY NASCAR CUP SERIES RACE SUNDAY, MAY 5
John Rich, one half of the superstar country music duo Big & Rich, will sing the national anthem prior to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway on Sunday, May 5, part of the Monster Mile’s 50th Anniversary celebration.
Big & Rich’s hit singles include the popular country anthems “Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)” and “Comin’ to Your City.” In addition to the anthem, Rich, along with frequent collaborator Cowboy Troy, is scheduled to make two appearances on the Xfinity Stage in Victory Plaza for free performances on the following dates:
• Saturday, May 4 – Free fan event following the NASCAR Xfinity Series Dash 4 Cash race.
• Sunday, May 5 – Appearance during the free Charlie Daniels Band concert before the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race.
Rich’s lifestyle brand, Redneck Riviera, is serving as the presenting sponsor of special fan access area The Hangout throughout the May 3-5 NASCAR tripleheader weekend. Redneck Riviera whiskey, which will be distributed across Delaware in the next several weeks, will be the key ingredient in the special Hangout drink “Saddle Up.” Rich contributes a portion of the proceeds from all Redneck Riviera whiskey sales to Folds of Honor, an organization whose mission is to provide educational and scholarship support to spouses and children of America's fallen and disabled service members.
"We promised our fans an exciting 50th Anniversary weekend and having John Rich here continues to add to our commitment to celebrate in style,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover International Speedway’s president and CEO. “We want our fans to take advantage of all of the fantastic entertainment options around the Monster Mile when they visit in May.”
