He’s no stranger to “World’s Most Famous Beach”. Jake Owen actually shot the video to “Beachin” at Daytona Beach and it’s kind of his backyard having grown up in Vero Beach, Florida, which is just a couple of hours south of Daytona. And by the sounds of the press release on the Daytona International Speedway website, we’re in for a ride.

“Multi-platinum selling singer/songwriter Jake Owen will perform the DAYTONA 500 Pre-Race Show prior to the 61st running of “The Great American Race” on Sunday, Feb. 17 (FOX, FOX Deportes, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio) at Daytona International Speedway. Fans will be able to see one of the hottest names in country music perform on stage prior to ‘The Great American Race,’” said Chip Wile, president of Daytona International Speedway. “Jake is going to deliver an unforgettable experience to our fans prior to another thrilling edition of the DAYTONA 500.”
