Tim Dugger Set For Talladega Concert

NASCAR and country music have always gone hand-in-hand, and no one personifies that combination more than singer-songwriter Tim Dugger, who will be performing as part of the free Saturday Night Infield Concert at Talladega Superspeedway during the Aaron’s Dream Weekend. 
The singer behind NASCAR anthem “You Know Who We Are” will rock the infamous Talladega infield on May 3, opening for country star Randy Houser.    
The Saturday Night Concert has become a tradition at Talladega Superspeedway with top music acts playing on a stage next to the infamously rowdy Talladega Blvd. Fans with tickets to Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 will receive free access to the concert.  
Headlining clubs along the NASCAR circuit for years, Dugger has amassed a loyal following of race fans, drivers, and crew chiefs. Songs of his like “Sunday Drive” and “You Know Who We Are” speak directly to the sport of NASCAR and the energy and excitement found on the track and in the stands each week.  
Over the past few years, Dugger, an Alabama-native, has performed with a wide variety of top country artists including Trace Adkins, Sarah Evans, Diamond Rio and Craig Morgan. He was featured in the television reality show “Highway to Fame” and is a favored performer at several Nashville hot spots. 
“We’re excited to have Tim Dugger back at Talladega Superspeedway for the Saturday Night Infield Concert,” said track Chairman Grant Lynch. “Tim has been a friend of the track for a few years and our fans love singing along to his songs, because they know he’s a true NASCAR diehard.” 
Houser will hit the stage after Dugger to give race fans a taste of his powerhouse vocals, playing hit songs “Runnin’ Out of Moonlight” and “Goodnight Kiss.”  

Saturday’s activities kick off at 10 am with the ARCA Racing Series International Motorsports Hall of Fame 200, followed by “Knockout” group qualifying for the Aaron’s 499 NASCAR Sprint Cup race, and the start of the Aaron’s 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series event.

    O.K., Dave -- you've used up your quota of "infamous" for this season in referring to the Talladega infield. Some of us who live here would appreciate a little help in improving the prevailing opinion of our track. (Especially among some others who also live here! But that's another subject entirely.)

    1. Well, since this story came almost entirely from the speedway -- including the "infamous" description -- you're probably preaching to the wrong guy. The `Dega infield has a long and much-deserved reputation as a party spot, and if you're not there for the party, the infield might not be the best place to park your RV!

      Grant Lynch lives two doors up. Guess I'll go knock on his door! ;-)
