NASCAR's All-Star Weekend adds another group of all-stars as multi-platinum recording artists 3 Doors Down will perform a 75-minute concert prior to the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race todat Saturday, May 17, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The concert begins at 3:30 p.m. in the infield between Turns 1 and 2. Admission to the concert is free with the purchase of a ticket to the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race.

The popular American rock band comes to the 1.5-mile superspeedway in advance of the group's new self-titled album release on May 20. "It's Not My Time," the first single from the album, has already reached the top of the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

One of the hardest touring bands in the business, 3 Doors Down was formed in 1996 in Escatawpa, Miss. The band is fronted on vocals by Brad Arnold and features guitarists Matt Roberts and Chris Henderson, Todd Harrell on bass guitar and Greg Upchurch on drums.

Bursting onto the mainstream music scene in early 2000, 3 Doors Down's debut album "The Better Life," contained the Billboard Modern Rock chart-topping single, "Kryptonite," which earned the group a Grammy nomination for Best Rock Song.

In November 2002, the group released its second studio album, "Away From the Sun," featuring the hit-single "When I'm Gone," that topped the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart for 17 weeks and propelled the group to two Grammy nominations for Best Rock Song and Best Rock Vocal Performance by Duo or Group.

3 Doors Down toured for much of 2003 and 2004 in support of "Away From the Sun," and issued the live album, "Another 700 Miles," in November of 2003 as a holdover between studio efforts.

The group returned with its third studio album, "Seventeen Days," in early 2005. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and went platinum in its first week. As a result of the group's 2005 success, 3 Doors Down was nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group.

Tickets for the May 17 NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race and May 25 Coca-Cola 600 can be purchased online or by calling the track ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS.
