“I grew up watching the NASCAR race every Sunday with my granddad; that was our thing,” said Combs. “I never could have imagined back then that I’d be playing the Daytona 500 one day, so this is super awesome and is something I’m really looking forward to.”
A limited number of fans will be at the pre-show performance because of COVID-19 restrictions. Additionally, the pre-show and race will be available for fans to watch at home on FOX.
“The tradition of the Daytona 500 Pre-Race Show has been an incredibly popular hit with race fans,” Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile said. “Luke has been one of the most influential country music stars over the last few years and his fan appeal is incredible. It’s a bonus, too, that he loves our sport. He will help get another thrilling DAYTONA 500, as well as a new NASCAR season, off to an exciting start.”
