For the third year in a row, one aspiring singer will get the opportunity of a lifetime before the start of the Sam’s Town 300 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Race sponsor Sam’s Town Hotel and Gambling Hall KVVU-FOX5 and LVMS staged an open audition called Speedway Superstar to find a singer to perform the national anthem prior to the March 5 NASCAR Nationwide Series event at the speedway.
