Luke Combs to Drive Pace Car at Ally 400

Country music star Luke Combs will drive the honorary pace car for the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series.

LEBANON, Tenn. – Country music sensation Luke Combs, known for his multi-platinum albums and numerous awards, will take on a new role this Sunday as the honorary pace car driver for the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series at Nashville Superspeedway. Combs, a two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year, will drive the official 2024 Ford Mustang Dark Horse pace car in front of an audience that includes fans from 48 states and 19 foreign countries.

Matt Greci, General Manager for Nashville Superspeedway, remarked, “A show with this much horsepower deserves plenty of star power too. We’re going to give Luke a fast car and see if he’s fast enough to drive away from the field of NASCAR’s best as we kick off Sunday’s showdown.”

Luke Combs previously served as Nashville Superspeedway’s honorary grand marshal for the 2021 Ally 400. This stint as honorary pace car driver is part of a busy summer for the Grand Ole Opry member and award-winning artist. Combs recently released a new single, “Ain’t No Love in Oklahoma,” which will feature on the soundtrack for the upcoming movie “Twisters,” set to release on July 19.

Combs also has a Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum exhibit opening on July 11 and is currently on his record-breaking “Growin’ Up and Gettin’ Old” stadium tour. Earlier this year, Combs performed a memorable duet of “Fast Car” with Tracy Chapman during the 66th Annual GRAMMY Awards. His version of the song won Single of the Year at both the 2024 ACM Awards and 2023 CMA Awards.

Luke Combs’ latest album, “Fathers & Sons,” was released by Columbia Nashville on June 14 and is available for purchase and streaming [here](
