Mich. — Race fans will be able to rock
the house during the Pure Michigan 400 race weekend at
Michigan International Speedway, as the popular rock band
Rev Theory is slated to headline the Budweiser Acceleration
Rev Theory and four other bands will perform at the speedway’s
Budweiser Acceleration Concert following the conclusion
of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series VFW 200 on Saturday,
The popular Saturday night concert in Lot 10 has always
been a crowd staple and fan favorite at MIS for nearly
a decade. Rev Theory follows a long list of spectacular
concerts that have been held at MIS including Sugarland,
Montgomery Gentry, 3 Doors Down, Saving Abel and Sick
Rev Theory will be out promoting its latest album “Justice”
which hit stores earlier this year with the leadoff title
track single, “Justice” quickly climbing the
active rock radio charts. Justice is Rev Theory’s
follow up to their successful 2008 Interscope Records
release, Light It Up.
“Rev Theory puts on an awesome show and we’re
excited to bring them to the speedway on August 20 for
our fans,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “The
post-race concerts have been a long-standing tradition
here at MIS and Rev Theory will continue that trend by
bringing some great rock music to the Irish Hills.”
Fans will also be able to take in the sights and sounds
of four other energetic rock bands prior to Rev Theory
taking the stage. The show will kick off with State Your
Cause taking the stage approximately 30 minutes after
the checkered flag of the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series
VFW 200. The Last Good Year and Nova will then follow
with MIS regular, Sore Eyes, wrapping up the opening acts.
Sponsoring the post-race concert is Budweiser, title sponsor
of Budweiser Acceleration, MIS’ all inclusive fan
hospitality club. Fan hospitality packages for the Budweiser
Acceleration Club are still available for the race weekend

has always enjoyed a great history of working with popular
concert acts and venues and the post-race concert at MIS

to extend the branding of our Budweiser Acceleration Club
