BROOKLYN, Mich. -- Emerson Drive with opening act Jacob Lyda will take the stage at Michigan International Speedway during the June race weekend for the Saturday-night post-race concert.

Canadian contemporary country music group Emerson Drive will headline the always popular and free concert in the New Holland Fan Plaza on Saturday, June 18. The concert on the Jagermeister stage will begin approximately 30 minutes after the Alliance Truck Parts 250 NASCAR Nationwide Series race.

Emerson Drive is supporting its fourth album, “Believe.” This album displays the quintet’s ability to uplift and inspire through songs like “I Love This Road,” and “Livin’ It Up,” both about the exhilaration of following dreams and celebrating life.

This album has made the group one of modern music’s must-see live acts. “This is the album that will define Emerson Drive from this point on," says lead-singer Brad Mates. “When we take the stage, we showcase all of our passion and enthusiasm for music.”

The group is wrapping up a Canadian spring tour and is gearing up for the summer, beginning at MIS.

Danick Dupelle, guitarist, added: “We can't wait to play at Michigan International Speedway," he said. “It’s such an awesome atmosphere and the fans there are extremely passionate.”

“We’re excited to bring in two great acts for our guests to enjoy during the June race weekend,” speedway President Roger Curtis said. “This should be a very special show and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the weekend. It doesn’t matter what kind of music you listen to; free, live concerts are always a fun way to spend time at MIS.”

Opening for Emerson Drive will be country music singer-songwriter Jacob Lyda. Lyda is working on his debut album, which will be released this fall, featuring his first single “I’m Doing Alright.” Jacob Lyda’s richly textured honky-tonk vocal style stems directly from his background. This is an artist who was born to sing country music and is sure to be a can’t-miss act.

The free concerts at MIS are part of the racetrack’s Fan Appreciation Program, a year-long celebration of the fans. Another concert will be held Aug. 20, during the August NASCAR weekend with the act yet to be announced.

Nestled in the lush Irish Hills of Southeastern Michigan, Michigan International Speedway is the Great Escape, a venerable NASCAR national park where fans can get away and enjoy the very best in racing and camaraderie. It’s the love of racing and the thrill of a great time for race fans and drivers alike.
