Blue Highway says, “Start your engines!”

Blue HighwayBlue Highway has been chosen to sing the National Anthem prior to the Sharpie Mini 300 at the Bristol Motor Speedway, March 24. This race is part of the NASCAR Busch series, and will be televised on the Fox Network. The pre-race ceremonies, including the anthem, are scheduled for 2:45 p.m.

I asked Tim Stafford if they expected their appearance to be included in the telecast.

“I actually saw the anthem last weekend for the Busch race because it was in Mexico City and the TV was on at the Mexican restaurant where we were eating, so… As far as I know, it will be.”

It seems safe to speculate that the guys won’t present some new wrinkle on The Star Spangled Banner, but will do it up proud with bluegrass-style harmony.
