Popular Las Vegas headliner Terry Fator has been tapped to sing the national anthem for the Shelby American NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on Sunday, Feb. 28.

Fator, known throughout the world for his celebrity singing impressions and unparalleled ventriloquism, won the second season of NBC-TV's America's Got Talent and currently performs at The Mirage Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

"It is an honor for me to sing the national anthem at the Shelby American race in Las Vegas," said Fator. "I believe that my fans and NASCAR fans are one and the same, so it is a match made in Heaven.  I grew up in Texas, so you know I'm a NASCAR fan!"

The Texas native's show - Terry Fator & His Cast of Thousands - brings to life his puppet co-stars including Winston the Impersonating Turtle, the loveable Emma Taylor and new addition Vikki the Cougar through comic banter and their hilarious takes on musical superstars such as Cher, Justin Timberlake, Elvis Presley, Garth Brooks, The Pussycat Dolls and more.
