Kansas's greatest hits and gravity defying motorcycles will kick-off the LENOX Industrial Tools 301 on June 29.
The festivities will include classic rock band Kansas and extreme stunts from Free Style MX motorcyclists. Both promise to be exciting preludes to the main event - the NASCAR Sprint Cup LENOX Industrial Tools 301.
The Freestyle MX tour, the largest and longest running motocross tour in the world, will put on a high-flying show between a take-off and landing ramp. Featured riders Brody Wilson, John Distler, James Carter and Derek Burlew will break out their arsenal of tricks including back flips, Superman Seat Grabs, Nac-Nacs, and Cliff Hangers, and other airborne tricks.
In celebration of their 30th anniversary, Kansas will take the stage on the front-stretch at 12:20 p.m. and will play songs from their new album, Two for the Show, a live compilation of their greatest hits and some new material, which has been re-mastered and is set to be released on July 1, 2008. They will rock the crowd in a 50 minute set which will feature some of their most popular songs including "Dust in the Wind" and "Carry On My Wayward Son", as well as showcase their latest efforts.
All of this leads up to the NASCAR Sprint Cup LENOX Industrial Tools 301, where the best drivers in the world will battle each other to win the first race in the ‘Race to the Chase' for the NASCAR Sprint Cup.
