Frankie Ballard will perform on the frontstretch at New Hampshire Motor Speedway today as part of the pre-race party prior to the start of the Sylvania 300.

With favorites like his latest hit “Sunshine & Whiskey” there is no doubt that Frankie Ballard will have fans wound up for the Sylvania 300 – the second race in the Challenger Round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “NASCAR races are loud, but we are, too,” said Ballard. “I’m excited to get those ears and eyeballs ready for some high-speed action.” Ballard launched onto the country music scene big time with his breakthrough No. 1 smash “Helluva Life.”

In racing yesterday at NHMS, the Camping World Truck Series UNOH 175 was won by 16-year-old driver Cole Custer. Local racing modified driving star JR Heffner from Lebanon Valley Speedway finished 23rd in his first truck race at NHMS.
