Dierks Bentley Set To Perform At This Year’s Daytona 500

Dierks Bentley is ready to ignite the crowd once again at another NASCAR race.

And this time? He’s heading to the 65th Daytona 500 on Feb. 19 at Daytona International Speedway, to perform a pre-race concert, according to Billboard.

Bentley shared in a statement:

“I’m ready to go back to Daytona with all of NASCAR’s biggest fans. The energy there is unmatched and I know we’ll have a lot of fun getting them ready to race.

This isn’t the first time Bentley has performed at Daytona, as it did at the 2011 Daytona 500 and during Speedweeks in 2009.

He also played in the NASCAR Cup Series championship in his home state of Arizona at Phoenix Raceway in 2021.

Daytona International President Frank Kelleher expressed his excitement for Dierks’ upcoming performance:

“We are honored to welcome Dierks back to the World Center of Racing. Having an entertainer who knows how to start a party, perform at the 65th DAYTONA 500, and kick off NASCAR’s 75th anniversary season, is a perfect combination for a fantastic Sunday.

The concert will take place on pit road and will be visible from the stands, but fans with a UNOH Fanzone Pass will be able to watch the concert up close.

A special VIP is also available for fans who wish to view in an area next to the stage.

The Fanzone Pass gives fans access to driver and VIP appearances, as well as a look at NASCAR Cup Series garages, up-close driver presentations, and more.

But speaking of Bentley, the man is gearing up to release his 10th studio album, Gravel & Gold, on February 24. So far, he’s released “High Note” alongside bluegrass artist Billy Strings and “Same Old Me.”

Not to mention Bentley calls it “the best country music I’ve ever made.”

“The road has been long. A 20-year journey filled with ups and downs, twists and turns. My love for country music is what has always kept me going. From city to city, from show to show, from small clubs to crowded arenas.

I worked hard, I took risks, I got things done. The journey isn’t where I’ve been, it’s what I took with me on my 10th album. I wrote, I recorded. It wasn’t good enough. I threw it away and started again – twice. I had to do it right, for the fans, for me.

It had to be the best country music I’ve ever made. Everyone introduced themselves, my heroes and my friends. We did it together. It’s love, lessons, gravel and gold.
