Kid Rock to Play NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship Race
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.”
