Dierks Bentley to Rock Richmond International Raceway Thursday, Sept. 8

Attention Virginia DB Congress!  Dierks Bentley will headline a Benefit Concert to drop the Green Flag on NASCAR Weekend at America’s Premier Short Track.  Our DBC president will kick off race weekend with a Thursday, September 8 concert at the Richmond International Raceway amphitheatre.

Dierks plays the track’s amphitheater for the first “Rockin’ the Raceway” to benefit the Cullather Brain Tumor Quality of Life Center at Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital.

Bentley’s first five albums have sold more than 5,000,000 copies, producing seven #1 hits. Additionally, he has received 10 Grammy nominations. His song “Sideways” is recognizable among NASCAR fans for its inclusion in FOX’s NASCAR race television promotional ads.

The concert, which precedes the September 9, Virginia 529 College Savings 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the September 10, Wonderful Pistachios 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, serves as a festive way to drop the green flag on race weekend in Richmond.

“This is going to be a very special and exciting way to begin our ‘One Last Race to Make The Chase’ weekend,” said Richmond International Raceway president Dennis Bickmeier. “Dierks is an incredible music artist who resonates with our fans and I’m sure he will rock the Raceway on September 8.”
