DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — For the first time, the NASCAR Silver Bullet Bash presented by Coors Light will take center stage in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Thursday, May 18. Celebrating the first half of the NASCAR season, the Silver Bullet Bash will lead off the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race weekend festivities with live music, special guests and unique experiences.

As part of this year’s event, Maren Morris, who recently won New Female Vocalist of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards, will rock the crowd with a headline performance at the legendary Fillmore Charlotte.

The Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter will take the stage for a special performance playing hit songs like “My Church” and “80s Mercedes” along with others from her new album HERO.

The NASCAR Silver Bullet Bash Presented by Coors Light has traditionally taken place during Champion’s Week in Las Vegas as a private invite-only event. This year’s bash marks the first time that NASCAR and Coors Light will open the doors to fans.

Beginning today, a limited number of fans 21-and-older can receive passes to this exclusive event by attending participating Charlotte area bars and restaurants that serve Coors Light, the Official Beer of NASCAR.

“The NASCAR Silver Bullet Bash was specifically designed for Coors Light to connect and engage with our fans at participating bars and restaurants in the weeks leading up to the event,” said Lou Garate, vice president, partnership marketing, NASCAR. “This year’s event will build excitement and set the stage for the Monster Energy All-Star weekend festivities taking place in Charlotte.”

Two of NASCAR’s young, up-and-coming drivers, Ryan Blaney and Ricky Stenhouse Jr., will attend the NASCAR Silver Bullet Bash and engage with some lucky fans. Both drivers will be actively promoting the event and encouraging fans to visit participating venues for a chance to attend the event.
