More AutoFair Attractions

Adding to the event's beach theme and endless summer atmosphere, the Summerdaze Band brings its unique mix of toe-tapping beach music to Charlotte Motor Speedway Sunday, Sept. 17, during the final day of the Food Lion AutoFair.

Formed in 2004 and based in Tega Cay, S.C., the Summerdaze Band is comprised of Adam Rouse, Cassie Kessler, George Booth, Mitchell Simpson, Steve Thrift and David Daniels. The group is recognized for its unique sound which blends a classic 1960's "surf's up" flavor with other genres such as blues, jazz, rock and pop.

In addition to a diverse repertoire of cover songs ranging from the Beach Boys to Outkast, the Summerdaze Band's first single, "Dixie Hummingbird," achieved recognition on the Endless Summer Beach Chart in 2005 and its most recent single, "Say My Name," is now receiving airplay.

Food Lion AutoFair, which runs Sept. 14-17 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, is recognized as the world's largest automotive extravaganza. The event includes a car show featuring various models from more than 50 clubs; more than 10,000 vendor spaces that offer automotive parts and memorabilia; and a car corral with nearly 1,500 vehicles available for sale or trade.

A display of vintage wood-bodied wagons, the Ultimate Surfmobile from Discovery Channel's "Monster Garage" and a 900-horsepower Shadrach Mustang will be among the vehicles featured in the Food Lion Pavilion.
