Dierks Bentley is currently out headlining his RISER tour, but on August 20th he'll make a pitstop to the the post-race concert in Bristol.

Bristol Motor reports, "

Bristol Motor Speedway revs up Wednesday night (Aug. 20), adding a full-length concert by award-winning country music star Dierks Bentley to its already competitive racing doubleheader.

The newly announced tripleheader - the Bush's Beans 150® Whelen Modfied race, NASCAR Camping World Truck Series UNOH 200 presented by ZLOOP and Dierks Bentley concert - provides an unforgettable race-day experience at an unbeatable price.

"Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway is already one of the most exciting nights in motorsports," said BMS Executive Vice President and General Manager Jerry Caldwell. "Now, with the support of our friends at Mountain Dew, we are able to offer fans an unbelievable night. The combination of intense racing, a country concert with music superstar Dierks Bentley and a $30 ticket price makes Wednesday night a can't-miss event."

Bentley, who is currently on the road headlining his 2014 RISER TOUR, is no stranger to motorsports. He performed at the 2013 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Banquet, has attended NASCAR races at BMS and recently revamped his number-one single "Sideways" for NASCAR on FOX. This is his first solo concert at the Last Great Colosseum.

"Racing fans are some of the best and loudest fans anywhere," said Bentley. "We've been out all summer on the RISER TOUR having the time of our lives, so getting to swing by Bristol to hang with all the race fans is an added bonus."' (Bristol Motor Speedway)
