Folk rock band America will be first act of the 2020 edition, lineup to also feature Chris Lane and Puddle of Mudd
NEWTON, Iowa (Feb. 11, 2020) – The green flag is waving over a new decade and 15 years of racing at Iowa Speedway. Legendary supergroup America, Puddle of Mudd and platinum country star Chris Lane will headline the highly anticipated lineup for this summer’s NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series at Iowa Speedway.
The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series returns for a sixth consecutive year, featuring three dynamic acts complementing six thrilling races. As in seasons past, each installment of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series will take place at the Party Pavilion, overlooking Turn 4, following the conclusion of the race on each Saturday of race weekend.
"The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series is focused on bringing fans awesome entertainment experiences across racing and music," said Iowa Speedway President David Hyatt. "The reprisal of the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series continues our deep-seeded commitment to providing our fans with a complete entertainment experience on race weekends, which involves much more than racing.
"We are always evolving and looking for new ways to create life-long memories and engage our fans that are looking for that one-of-a-kind motorsports experience."
In less than a decade, the NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series has become a tremendous success for Iowa Speedway. The 2020 NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series kicks off on Saturday, June 13 when America takes center stage following the NASCAR Xfinity Series Iowa 250. The folk-rock act of the early ’70s had several Top-10 hits, including "A Horse with No Name" and "Ventura Highway." This year America will spend much of this 50th anniversary year on the road playing 89 concerts in the U.S. and Europe.
Alt-metal quartet Puddle of Mudd’s power ballads such as "Blurry" will maintain the breakneck pace at the Fastest Short Track on the Planet following the NTT IndyCar Series Iowa 300 on Saturday, July 18. Puddle of Mudd has sold over seven million albums and has had a string of No. 1 singles.
The NAPA Auto Parts Concert Series will close out on Saturday, Aug. 1 with chart-topping Country artist Chris Lane. His star is on the rise with multiple gold and platinum level single certifications, two #1 hits ("Fix," "I Don’t Know About You"), and more than 1.1 billion career streams to date. Lane’s current single "Big, Big Plans" – penned for his wife, Lauren – is climbing the country radio charts. Previously landing coveted opening slots on tours with Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks, Tim McGraw + Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts and Dan + Shay, he’s currently on his headline BIG, BIG PLANS TOUR and will join Kane Brown on the road this spring. His performance will follow the NASCAR Xfinity Series U.S. Cellular 250.
