Darius Rucker To Perform National Anthem Before Darlington Race

Country music artist Darius Rucker will perform the national anthem before Sunday’s NASCAR Cup Series race at Darlington Raceway.

His performance will be broadcast at 3:30 p.m. ET on FOX, MRN, SiriusXM and NASCAR Radio.

Rucker shared the news on social media. “NASCAR is back at Darlington Raceway, @TooToughToTame! Looking forward to performing the national anthem this Sunday. Y’all watching?,” he tweeted.

Rucker recently performed a pre-race concert before this year’s Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway in February.

The three-time Grammy-winner, who hails from Charleston, South Carolina, is longtime NASCAR fan. He expressed excitement for the opportunity to perform leading up to the race in his home state.

Sunday’s 400-mile event marks the restart of the 2020 NASCAR Cup Series season, which was suspended due the coronavirus pandemic.
