Kyra White may get her big break on Saturday, Feb. 28 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Las Vegas teenager and aspiring singer won the "Speedway Superstar" competition and will sing the national anthem prior to the Sam's Town 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

"I am looking forward to coming out to Las Vegas Motor Speedway and just having my voice heard," said White. "I have been singing all of my life and Speedway Superstar was the perfect opportunity to get exposure and experience at such a big event. I am so excited and grateful to be a part of this and cannot wait to sing in front of such an exciting group of race fans."

White, a 14-year-old Las Vegas native and student at Liberty High School, has been singing at local sporting events for several years but will experience her first NASCAR race at the speedway on Saturday. Members of the FOX 5 news team surprised White at school to announce that she had been chosen to sing the national anthem during NASCAR Weekend.

Sam's Town Hotel and Gambling Hall, the race sponsor, as well as FOX 5 TV, staged an open audition to find a singer to perform the national anthem and chose White out of more than 170 contestants.

"I saw an advertisement for the Speedway Superstar competition on television and knew that I wanted to try out," said White. "It was a challenge singing in front of other contestants who all had such great talent, but I had a great time and am looking forward to singing for the Sam's Town 300."
