What to Watch for at the Folds of Honor Quik Trip 500

by Dixie Haag | Posted on Sunday, February 24th, 2019

As you watch this week’s NASCAR race, there are some exciting things to look for. I’m most excited for the music. 

Pre-race Concert: LANCO

iHeart’s “Best New Country Artist” nominee LANCO will perform on Atlanta Motor Speedway’s pre-race stage ahead of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on Sunday, February 24.

The “arena-rock leaning band” (Entertainment Weekly) paved the course for critical acclaim with the success of their 2x PLATINUM single “Greatest Love Story” which became a multi-week chart topper. Following the release of their No. One selling debut album HALLELUJAH NIGHTS, both moments were historical in Country music as Lancaster became the first artist in 10 years to have a No. One on the chart solely written by that artist while LANCO serves as the first Country group in a decade to appear at the top of the Billboard Country albums chart with a debut album, which now boasts over 426 million streams.

National Anthem Performer:  Billy Gilman

Billy Gilman — “The Voice” sensation and singer of the hit single “One Voice” — will sing the National Anthem before the start of the Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 on February 24.

Before dazzling millions and earning a runner-up finish on “The Voice”, Gilman burst onto the national stage in 2000 with his hit single “One Voice.” His debut album was certified double platinum in the United States, and he was included in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the youngest singer to ever reach #1 on the Billboard Top Country Album charts.
