Chris Janson in concert at Phoenix

ISM Raceway is thrilled to announce that platinum-selling artist Chris Janson will headline the O'Reilly Auto Parts Pre-Race Party on Sunday, Nov. 11, prior to the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Can-Am 500. The INfield party will kick off as Janson takes the stage at 10:30 a.m.

Access to the O'Reilly Auto Parts Pre-Race Party is available to all fans with Sunday INfield access. In addition to Janson's concert, fans with INfield Experience wristbands will also have the opportunity to participate in an all-new approach to driver introductions. The stars of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series will be delivered in Toyota Tundras to the O'Reilly Auto Parts Pre-Race Party catwalk, high-fiving fans as they make their way across to pit road just prior to the start of the Can-Am 500.

"We can't wait to see Chris Janson take the stage during our O'Reilly Auto Parts Pre-Race Party prior to the Can-Am 500," said Julie Giese, President of ISM Raceway. "The buzz around our Opening Weekend is electric and an artist like Janson personifies that level of excitement. Our fans on Sunday will be in for an amazing event."

Warner Music Nashville's Janson, a self-taught multi-instrumental talent, is a renowned performer that operates on a totally different wavelength. He is a gifted songwriter whose deep messages are often delivered with a clever, lighthearted smirk, and many recognize Janson as one of the genre's most captivating total package phenomena.

Coming off the career-defining success of his Platinum-certified hit "Buy Me a Boat" and its Top-5 album of the same name, the 3-time CMA nominee is turning his creativity loose. With his second album, Everybody, he combines all the elements that make him unique. Twelve new tracks show off the contrasting shades of Janson's world, both a restless ball of energy and a dedicated husband and father. His new tunes bound between upbeat enthusiasm and heartfelt tenderness.

Limited wristbands for INfield access to the 2018 Opening Weekend and Can-Am 500 are still available online at ISMRaceway.com, by phone at 1-866-408-RACE (7223) or in person at the ISM Raceway ticket office. Single day INfield wristbands start at just $35 and fans can get one for the whole weekend for $129 in addition to the purchase of a grandstand ticket.
