FONTANA, Calif. (March 10, 2017) – Emerging artist, Skylar Stecker, will perform the National Anthem prior to the start of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway on Sunday, March 26. The race will broadcast at 12:30 p.m. (PT) on FOX.

 

Skylar Stecker is coming off a prolific year in which she released the signature edition of her debut album "This Is Me," undertook two national tours, sang the Star Spangled Banner to over 100,000 people in her original home state of Wisconsin's Lambeau Field, recorded the theme song to Radio Disney Music Awards "Cherry on Top," and hit no. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart with "Sweet Dreams," her collaboration with the electronic duo JX RIDERS.  Today, the singer songwriter released her brand new single “Only Want You.”  Produced by Tricky Stewart (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige) “Only Want You” is a futuristic amalgam of Tom Tom Club, early Mariah Carey and bouncy Bruno Mars all laced with Skylar’s effervescent vocals.

 

“We’re thrilled to have Skylar Stecker be a part of the pre-race ceremonies. She is a rising star and we look forward to her rendition of the national anthem,” said Dave Allen, President of Auto Club Speedway.

Signed to Cherrytree Records on the spot after a sold-out show at The Roxy in Hollywood in 2013, Skylar has been impressing audiences with her powerful pipes and emotive vocal delivery ever since. As audiences continue to discover Skylar Stecker's dynamic voice and as she prepares to launch her new single "Only Want You," only more adventures will unfold for this musical young artist.

With a race ticket, fans have access to Auto Club Speedway’s 20th Anniversary celebrations in the O’Reilly Auto Parts Fan Zone including driver appearances, live entertainment, autograph sessions, Lefty’s Fun Zone, Viva La Fiesta area, motocross exhibits and other family fun. .
