Gordie Brown, a multi-talented impressionist, singer and entertainer, will headline the pre-race show prior to the Shelby 427 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on March 1.

Brown, who starts a new show at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino this week, has spent the past year on a world tour with Celine Dion, where he has served as her opening act.

"Gordie Brown has become a Las Vegas staple over the past several years," said LVMS President Chris Powell. "He's an amazing entertainer who will bring a lot of excitement and laughter to the thousands of race fans at the Shelby 427."

Brown is known for his comedy and an amazing repertoire of celebrity impressions including Garth Brooks, Clint Eastwood and Jack Nicholson.

"I'm thrilled to get an opportunity to perform before the largest sports event in the state of Nevada," Brown said. "I've been touring with Celine for the past year, and we have seen some amazing crowds along the way, but this will be an experience like no other. I'm excited that the speedway has invited me to perform, and rest assured, we will make sure it's a memorable experience for everyone who comes to the race on March 1."

Brown will perform for approximately 15 minutes immediately prior to the 1 p.m. introduction of drivers for the Shelby 427.
