DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Country music star Trace Adkins will sing the national anthem and Hall of Fame cornerback Charles Woodson is the grand marshal for Sunday’s sold-out Daytona 500.
Daytona International Speedway is back to full capacity a year after the pandemic roughly limited attendance to 30,000 fans. Daytona should expect about 100,000 fans on Sunday.
Adkins has sold more than 11 million albums over a 25-year career and is a multi-time Grammy nominee.
Woodson will give the command for drivers to start their engines.
