"Miller Lite Carb Day is filled with non-stop entertainment and excitement from start to finish," said Joie Chitwood, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president and chief operating officer. "The energy and power of 3 Doors Down will provide a perfect soundtrack to one of the biggest days of the year at the Speedway."
