Country star Craig Morgan to perform National Anthem at Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 6
Award-winning country star Craig Morgan will highlight pre-race activities for the Kobalt 400 when he performs the national anthem before the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, March 6. 

The native Tennessean and U.S. Army veteran is perhaps best known for his chart-topping hit “That’s What I Love About Sundays,” which was named as Billboard magazine’s number one country hit of 2005. Morgan, a two-time Inspirational Country Music Award winner, is also known for his breakout songs “International Harvester” and “Redneck Yacht Club,” among others.

The 51-year-old, who is also a sheriff’s deputy and former EMT, will be in Las Vegas performing at Race Jam on Fremont Street on Saturday, March 5. Morgan is the host of the popular television show “Craig Morgan’s All Access Outdoors,” which airs on the Outdoor Channel.

Joining Morgan for pre-race activities is the popular group The Atlantic City Boys, who will perform before opening ceremonies for the 19th annual NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at LVMS. The Atlantic City Boys perform hits of all kinds, from Beatles and Beach Boys songs, to top hits from the Bee Gees, Four Seasons and members of the “Rat Pack.”

The entertainers will be in town performing nightly shows at the South Point Hotel, Spa and Casino throughout 2016 NASCAR Weekend March 4-6.

Kobalt 400 pre-race festivities will also include a flyover by the famed Thunderbirds, as well as driver introductions and the NASCAR Sprint Cup drivers’ meeting in the Neon Garage. The Neon Garage in the superspeedway’s infield opens at 7 a.m. Pacific Time.

LVMS’ 2016 NASCAR Weekend begins Thursday, March 3, with a free practice session that runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Stratosphere Pole Day follows on Friday, March 4, with NASCAR Sprint Cup Series qualifying beginning at 4:45 p.m. The Xfinity Series’ Boyd Gaming 300 takes place at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 5, and the weekend’s crescendo comes on Sunday, March 6, in the form of the Kobalt 400 at 12:30 p.m.
