Loudon, NH — Country singer Brett Eldredge will kick start the SYLVANIA 300 race weekend with a concert during the WOKQ FanFest at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Thursday, Sept. 22 beginning at 5 p.m.
Eldredge’s hit song “Raymond” is an emotional tale of a nursing home employee mistaken by a patient with Alzheimer’s for her deceased son.
The Atlantic Recording artist has earned a reputation for the strength of his writing and for his world-class voice. He and co-writer Pat McLaughlin landed a song called “I Think I’ve Had Enough” on Gary Allan’s latest album Get Off on the Pain, and one of his frequent collaborators is Country Music Hall of Famer and Grand Ole Opry stalwart Bill Anderson.
Several NASCAR drivers will be on hand for autograph sessions during FanFest. NASCAR Camping World Truck Series stars Justin Lofton, driver of the No. 6 CollegeComplete.com Chevrolet and Brendan Gaughan, driver of the No. 62 South Point Hotel & Casino Toyota will sign autographs for fans beginning at 6:15 p.m. Along with the pole winners for both the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East New Hampshire 125 and the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour New Hampshire 100 immediately following their qualifying runs.
“The Magic Mile” and the New Hampshire Lottery will attempt to break a world record by scratching-off the world’s largest instant ticket at 6:30 p.m.
FanFest will also include the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Hauler Parade beginning at 6:30 p.m. This unique opportunity allows fans to see the colorful rigs that bring their favorite driver’s car to the track for race weekend.
