The U.S. Army Chorus Quartet’s rendition of the national anthem will follow pre-race and driver introductions both days. Fans will want to be sure to be in their seats for “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The U.S. Army Chorus Quartet has performed across the country and at some of the most prestigious locations. The rendition is sure to be an unforgettable performance.
“We are honored to have the U.S. Army Chorus Quartet perform the national anthem for the Pure Michigan 400 and Careers for Veterans 200,” MIS President Roger Curtis said. “There is no better group to perform the national anthem than these soldiers. We are looking forward to their performance and we are sure the fans will enjoy it, as well.”
Way to go, Bob!
