Irwindale, Calif. - - She's only 11 years old and already a recording sensation! Tatiana Bolaños will be the Speedway's special guest artist on Saturday night September 16, when she will sing both the Mexican and United States national anthems prior to the start of the evening's full slate of exciting NASCAR racing.

"We're so pleased to have a talent like Tatiana Bolaños here to sing the national anthems of both the U.S. and Mexico, especially on this very important day of remembrance," said Bob DeFazio, the race track's VP/COO. "We've heard her recordings and are really looking forward to hearing her sing at Irwindale."

For her few years, Bolaños has appeared on numerous television programs. Popular shows like: Rosie O'Donald, Jenny Jones, Maury Povich, Primer Impacto, Sabado Gigante, and Nickelodeon, have all featured the young artist.

Beginning her professional singing career at the tender age of 9, the young chanteuse has become a hotly sought-after headliner on both the U.S. and South American concert scene. Tatiana was recently honored to be named the Junior Grand Marshall for the Fiesta Broadway celebration, an event that annually brings thousands of music aficionados to downtown Los Angeles.

Irwindale Speedway's ticket offices will open at noon on Saturday with the grandstands opening to the public at 4:00 p.m. Pre-race ceremonies (including the singing of the anthems) will get under way at about 6:45 p.m.
