Iconic rock band set to take stage Auto Club 500 morning

San Bernardino County, Calif. (Feb. 3, 2010) -- If you're a race fan, a classic rock fan and have some "time on your hands", then Auto Club Speedway has some kind of weekend in store for you during the West Coast Premiere of NASCAR weekend.

In addition to NASCAR's top drivers rocking the house in the Auto Club 500 on Sunday, Feb. 21, legendary rock band STYX will do that same with a pre-race concert performance on the Opportunity, California FanZone main stage that same morning. The band is scheduled to take stage at 10:15 a.m., but fans are encouraged to gather early to see one of the world's most popular rock bands.

Tommy Shaw, James "JY" Young, Lawrence Gowan, Todd Sucherman, Ricky Phillips and Chuck Panozzo (on occasion), have performed more live since '99 than all of the previous years of its career combined. Two Super-Bowl appearances, Pollstar Box Office chart-topping tours with Def Leppard, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon and Bad Company (just to name only a few), two more studio albums with no end in sight, STYX continues to conquer the planet, one venue at a time.

With big hit singles like Too Much Time on My Hands, Blue Collar Man, Come Sail Away and Renegade and classic albums like The Grand Illusion, Pieces of Eight and Cornerstone, one of music's most enduring acts promises a masterful performance of classic rock hits. www.styxworld.com
