Foreigner Kicks Off Pre-Race Show at Texas: Legendary rock bank Foreigner, known for its chart-topping hits during the 1970s and ‘80s, will headline the Amdro FireStrike Pre-Race show Sunday, April 5 prior to the Samsung 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race. The group is best known for hit songs, “Feels Like The First Time,” “Cold As Ice,” “Double Vision,” “Juke Box Hero” and “I Want to Know What Love Is.” This is the band's first NASCAR event experience and will be the largest expected crowd that the group has ever performed in front of for a concert. Isnt that surprising? You think with the stadium crowds from the 80's!

Foreigner has also teamed up with Speedway Children’s Charities-Texas Chapter to donate half of the sales from their CD, “No End In Sight: The Very Best of Foreigner” that will be sold leading up to the start of the Samsung 500 on Sunday, April 5.The CD features a vast assortment of their hit songs, many you will hear at the pre race concert. SCC volunteers will be selling the CDs for $20 at Gate 4 in the grandstands prior to the race. For every CD sold, Foreigner will donate $10 to the SCC-Texas Chapter.

This Monday, Foreigner’s Mick Jones and Kelly Hansen traded in their band gear for a couple of fire suits and helmets to experience NASCAR full throttle at Texas Motor Speedway. You can read more about it here.

Like last week, the National Anthem will be delivered with no potential harm to your eardrums. 12-year-old Pianist Lewis Warren Jr. will perform the National Anthem before the Samsung 500 at Texas on Sunday. Warren Jr. was featured last year on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent”.

Yet, another contest that I forgot to enter was held by Samsung and ended this past weekend will determine the grand marshall for the race. We will release the winner when we have it.
