Gretchen Wilson is a Grammy-winning country artist with multiple No. 1 albums and her own record company. She has also been a big racing fan since she was a kid, when she would watch her father run on dirt tracks around St. Louis.
"He would let me clean the mud out of the wheel wells with a 2x4, and I thought I was part of the pit crew," she recalled.
During this year's NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup, Wilson's music and love of racing are coming together as part of ESPN's coverage of the 10 races that will determine the Sprint Cup Series champion. She is introducing the telecasts of all 10 races, and ESPN's telecasts will feature music from her two new albums, "Right On Time" and "Under The Covers," as well as the hits that launched her career.
"Many of the fans who show up at our concerts on Saturday nights are watching the races on Sundays," said Wilson, who has performed the national anthem at several NASCAR races during her singing career. "I'm honored to be a part of this great American tradition and look forward to seeing the fans at some races this fall."
"This has already been an exciting season and I think it's about to get crazy."
