Trailer Choir to perform national anthem and free concert on Sunday, Sept. 27 during race weekend at Dover International Speedway

DOVER, Del. -- Fans coming to Dover International Speedway on Sunday, Sept. 27, 2009 will get a double dose of the sounds of the country music group Trailer Choir prior to the start of the "AAA 400" NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. The group will perform songs from their debut release, "Off The Hillbilly Hook," including their hit song "Rockin' the Beer Gut" live on the Victory Plaza stage at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning, and will later sing the national anthem prior to the start of the AAA 400 at 2 p.m.

For Trailer Choir, the last 18 months have been a frenetic introduction to the national stage. From their signing with label Show Dog Nashville to being named the "Best New Country Duo/Group" by About.com, the trio made a notable impression on country music without seeming to pause for so much as an extra breath.

The band, consisting of Butter, Big Vinny and Crystal, made a name for themselves while on tour with country music superstar Toby Keith. The tour included 49 shows opening for Keith, performances at the CMA Music Festival and National Finals Rodeo. Songs from their debut album, "Off The Hillbilly Hook," were featured in the movie and soundtrack of the feature film "Beer For My Horses," and the original song "Last Man Standing" was used by ESPN & ABC in a national NASCAR promotion, including during the telecast of Dover's Sept. 21, 2008 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.

The Trailer Choir concert on Sunday of race weekend highlights a full list of fun and free activities available for race fans at the track throughout the weekend. For more information about entertainment, attractions and the schedule of events, visit DoverSpeedway.com.

Tickets are on sale for the entire Sept. 25-27, 2009 race weekend, and great seats still remain for all three days. For tickets, call 800-441-RACE or visit DoverSpeedway.com.
