UFC President Dana White, country music recording artist Matt Stell and comedian Jim Breuer are among the headliners for pre-race activities prior to the South Point 400 on Sunday, Sept. 26 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
White, president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, will serve as the race‘s grand marshal and will deliver the command to start engines.
RECORDS Nashville/Arista Nashville Platinum-selling artist Stell, who will perform the national anthem, is one of country music‘s top new acts. With more than 450 million cumulative streams across his catalog to date, Stell is adding to his tally with his newest single, That Ain‘t Me No More, the follow-up to his back-to-back No. 1s, Prayed For You and Everywhere But On. He has joined Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert and Old Dominion on tour this year.
Following the anthem, a team of A-10 Warthog Thunderbolt IIs from nearby Nellis Air Force Base will perform the flyover.
Breuer, who will be performing his stand-up comedy routine during race weekend at the South Point, will provide pre-race entertainment prior to driver introductions. Breuer has been a cast member on Saturday Night Live, starred in the movie Half Baked and has spent almost 30 years as a comedian.
