If you seek the spotlight and have the vocal talent to entertain a crowd, Atlanta Motor Speedway wants you to sing the national anthem.
Atlanta Motor Speedway is searching for local singers to perform the national anthem before the on-track action at Thursday Thunder and Friday Night Drags throughout the remaining summer months. In addition to the opportunity to perform at Atlanta Motor Speedway's summer-racing series, the performances will also be used as anthem auditions for the Pep Boys Auto 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup race weekend on Labor Day weekend.
In addition to singers, Atlanta Motor Speedway will welcome demos from instrumentalists and other musical acts. All entrants must complete the anthem in 90 seconds or less.
For more information or to submit voice samples, contact Dan Rexrode at (770) 946-3923 or email Rexrode at . All audio samples must be limited to 5 megabytes. Applicants can also visit www.atlantamotorspeedway.com/visitors/anthem/ for more information or to apply.
Atlanta Motor Speedway's Thursday Thunder features grass-roots, short-track racing on the one-quarter mile "Thunder Ring" every Thursday through Aug. 6. Tickets are just $5 for adults and $1 for children 6-11 (ages 5 and under are free).
Friday Night Drags runs nearly every Friday night through Sept. 11 highlighting straight-line speed on AMS' eighth-mile, pit-lane drag strip. Entry to drag race or for the Show N' Shine is $20 or competitors can enter both for $30. Spectator admission is only $7 and exterior parking is free, while infield parking is $20.
