Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing and Kustom Entertainment announced on Monday that they will host Trace Adkins at this weekend’s 2023 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding.
Speaking about the news, Trace Adkins commented saying:
“It is always a distinct honor to perform our national anthem at any event, but it’s an extra thrill to kick off the start of the Firestone Grand Prix. “As a longtime auto racing fan, I look forward to attending the Grand Prix of St. Petersburg.”
Trace Adkins will perform at Country Roots Festival in Kansas City, Kansas on May 13th. This is the first festival Kustom 440, a division of Kustom Entertainment, will produce and promote Trace Adkins and other musicians as part of Country Roots Festival.
Stan Ross, CEO of Kustom Entertainment said:
“We are honored and excited to host such an accomplished performer not only at our Country Roots Festival but here at St. Pete. “We look forward to introducing Trace to the RLL family and our No. 30 NTT INDYCAR SERIES driver, Jack Harvey.”
Jack Harvey, driver of the No.30 Kustom Entertainment RLL Honda said:
I can’t wait to take the green flag for the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in my No. 30 Kustom Entertainment Indy car. “The race was already a must-see event and having Trace Adkins with us on race day and performing the national anthem will make it even more so. Kustom Entertainment has absolutely been killing it recently!”
