Atlanta Motor Speedway is seeking local singers and bands to perform the national anthem before the on-track action at Thursday Thunder and Friday Night Drags this summer.

Selected performers will be introduced to the crowd and sing the national anthem before Atlanta Motor Speedway's summer racing series. In addition to performing at summer events, the performances will also be used as anthem auditions for the Atlanta's Labor Day NASCAR night racing weekend.

In addition to singers, Atlanta Motor Speedway will welcome demos from instrumentalists and other musical acts. All entrants must complete the anthem in 120 seconds or less.

For more information or to submit voice samples, email the Atlanta Motor Speedway Events Staff at events2@atlantamotorspeedway.com. All audio samples must be limited to five megabytes. Applicants can also visit www.atlantamotorspeedway.com/visitors/anthem/ for more information or to apply.
