Chase Rice was one of several country stars who attended the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series at Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday.
The “If I Were Rock & Roll” singer was on hand to cheer on his friend Chase Elliott and even stuck around through both rain delays to celebrate Elliott’s big win in Victory Lane.
Rice attended the game alongside his four-legged friend, Jack, who sported a special “NASHCAR” shirt in honor of the big race.
“Jacks first nascar race🤘🏼🐶,” Rice captioned a photo of himself with his pup.
The country hitmaker is no stranger to NASCAR. Before making it big in Nashville, Rice was a pit crew member for Hendrick Motorsports. During his time on the pit crew, Rice worked for drivers Ryan Newman and Jimmie Johnson.
Chase Rice has been touring extensively and is preparing to hit the road with Jason Aldean on Rock N’ Roll Cowboy Tour later this year.
During recent shows, Rice has been debuting new music, including the track “Key West and Colorado,” a song he co-wrote with Brian Kelley.
Dubbed “NASHCAR,” the Ally 400 took place at the Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday, June 26. The event brought out a plethora of country music artists, including, Kane Brown, who served as the Grand Marshal, as well as Brothers Osborne, who headlined the pre-race concert, and Reyna Roberts, who sang the National Anthem.
Morgan Wallen, Tyler Braden, Chase Rice, Rascal Flatts’ Gary LeVox, Julia Cole, Peytan Porter, Shelby Darrall, Charles Esten, Halle Kearns, Mason Ramsey, and more were also in attendance.
Dolly Parton and Keith Urban also partook in the festivities virtually.
