I wonder how many Sharpie's Dierks Bentley goes through in a typical tour month. With all the autograph signing and all the set lists taped to the stage floor, I'm guessing hundreds. And that's just the black ones. Then there's the silver Sharpies for signing the black DB Congress shirts. I always carry silver Sharpies--just in case!

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Personalities among NASCAR’s Sprint Cup drivers are as varied as their musical tastes. Fans will get more of an indication as to what might make their favorite drivers tick during driver introductions for the Sharpie 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway tomorrow night, Aug. 22 at 7:30 pm. Each driver was asked to walk out to the song of their choice.*

It's no secret that Dierks and driver Kasey Kahne are friends. So it's fitting that KK has chosen buddy Dierks Bentley’s “Life On The Run,” for his driver introduction song before the Sharpie 500! Great choice, Kasey!

Let's go racin' boys!

Somewhere in the distance is where I need to be
All I care about right now is speed

Here they come now, they're closin' in
Pack of blood hounds gonna catch my scent
Here they come now, now I'm gone again

  1. I got at least 3 texts from friends about this -- Kasey's my favorite driver and everybody knows my love for Dierks. That's my Kasey.

    And my friend Cortney who is in Bristol said that Terry Labonte also played Dierks! Sweet!
