We’re delighted that they will continue to contribute to our success,” said Mike Tatoian, Dover International Speedway’s president and CEO. “This is an exciting time for our business, with NASCAR’s introduction of Monster Energy as the Cup Series’ premier sponsor and Firefly Music Festival’s continued growth. We’re looking forward to Rob and Gary using their expertise to help us expand our marketing and business development reach for years to come.”

He burst onto the country music scene in 2003 with his platinum-selling debut album “Long Black Train” and has since released No. 1 hits including “Your Man,” “Would You Go With Me,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance” and “All Over Me.” His single “Time Is Love” was also the most-played country music song of 2012. 
Turner, who describes himself as a family man, philanthropist, devoted Christian and passionate sports fan, has garnered multiple GRAMMY, CMA and ACM award nominations since he signed with MCA Nashville Records in 2003. His most recent single, “Hometown Girl,” was released last May. He will perform it and many of his fans’ favorite hits in a full-length concert on the AMS frontstretch beginning at 1 p.m. as part of the pre-race festivities leading up to the scheduled green flag at 2:30 p.m.
“We’re gonna have a blast playing at the Atlanta race,” said Turner. “I’ve never been to the track, but I grew up in the NASCAR culture with Darlington just an hour from my home-place. Race fans and country music fans have always coincided, so I’ll be right at home.”
Turner has been songwriting and performing since he was a young child, and in support of music education, he created The Josh Turner Scholarship Fund to assist students interested in pursuing a future in arts and music. In addition to his numerous musical accolades, Turner added author to his resume in 2014 with his first book, “Man Stuff: Thoughts on Faith, Family and Fatherhood.”
