From Yahoo! news:
A star-studded group of entertainers, including country music star Clint Black and Beach Boys great Brian Wilson , will highlight the "Nextel Tribute to America," the prerace extravaganza for the Daytona 500. Joining them Feb. 20 will be recording artists John Ondrasik and Five for Fighting, and singer/actress Vanessa Williams.
The group joins a long list of the famous people — led by President George W. Bush — who have participated in prerace festivities. Others are Ben Affleck , LeAnn Rimes, Whoopi Goldberg , John Travolta , Mariah Carey, Clarence Thomas , Terry Bradshaw and Jim Kelly.
Who among us doesn't love the Nextel Tribute to America? It's interesting that Brian Wilson will be there. This seems more like a Mike Love kind of thing.
