Upstate singers looking for the chance to perform on a major stage can audition Thursday to sing at an upcoming NASCAR race.
Charlotte Motor Speedway is hosting the "Speedway Superstar Tour," presented by Coca-Cola, scouting out performers across North and South Carolina for the chance to sing the National Anthem or God Bless America during the 10 Greatest Days of Racing at the speedway.
Auditions are scheduled for 11 a.m. at Soby's Restaurant in downtown Greenville and at 4 p.m. at Best Buy on Woodruff Road.
Contestants must be 18 or older and should arrive at least 30 minutes before auditions start.
Singers will perform up to 60 seconds of an a cappella rendition of either the National Anthem or God Bless America and will be recorded. Fans will get to watch the tryouts online and vote for their favorites.
Five winners will be picked to perform during the 10-day racing event that features the N.C. Education Lottery 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race, the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race, the History 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race, the History 300 NASCAR Nationwide Series race and the Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race.
