Kid Rock will be in action Sunday (Nov. 18) as he performs at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship race and will be a major part of the coverage on ESPN.

The vocalist will be part of the pre-race festivities, playing a live set that includes the race-appropriate single ‘Let’s Ride’ along with three other tracks. In addition, Rock will serve as the celebrity pace car driver at the Homestead-Miami Raceway. The pre-race coverage will begin at 1:30PM ET.

After all of the pre-race fun, Rock will head into the booth where he’ll answer questions during the first extended caution. ESPN, who are broadcasting the race beginning at 3:00PM ET, will also show the musician some love by playing his music during the telecast as well.

Rock has had a strong presence in the world of NASCAR as his music has been part of telecasts throughout the “Chase for the Sprint Cup” season. Homestead-Miami track president Matthew Becherer stated, “The addition of Kid Rock rounds out a stellar lineup of entertainment for Ford Championship Weekend. His music is pure Americana and will be the perfect way to transition to 267 laps of championship racing.”

Rock’s new album, Rebel Soul,’ arrives in stores this week. The musician will also be seen this Thursday performing at halftime of the Detroit Lions’ Thanksgiving Day game.
