CONCORD, N.C. -- Fans will roar and the red, white and blue will wave before the green flag on May 28 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. Iconic rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd will salute America with the ultimate Memorial Day Weekend mix of rock and racing in front of a captivated audience in the Coca-Cola 600 Concert presented by Speed Perks.

The 2006 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees will perform hits including world-renowned, Southern rock anthems "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" for Coca-Cola 600 ticket holders on the Pit Party stage on pit road.

"We can't wait to get to rocking with all the race fans," lead singer Johnny Van Zant said. "This is going to be one of the coolest concerts we'll play all year. It's not often that you get the chance to perform before something as true-blue American as the Coca-Cola 600. Everybody had better be ready because it's going to get wild."

The Lynyrd Skynyrd concert is part of the 10 Days of NASCAR Thunder at Charlotte Motor Speedway, which also includes the May 20 Monster Energy NASCAR All-Star Race. Platinum-selling entertainer Justin Moore will perform a free pre-All-Star Race concert presented by Rayovac Batteries and Kwikset.
