This will be American Authors' second performance during NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion's Week, as they will headline the NASCAR Silver Bullet Bash Presented by Coors Light.

Singer, songwriter Skylar Grey will also be featured at NASCAR's championship celebration. The five-time Grammy Award-nominated artist recently released her sophomore album "Natural Causes" and has co-written hits for the likes of Rihanna and Nicki Minaj.
