Ed Clark, Atlanta Motor Speedway president commented, â€œWe were honored for Ernie Haase and Signature Sound to return to Atlanta Motor Speedway and sing the national anthem for the AdvoCare 500. Just like last year, after the race we received an overwhelming response for their rendition of the anthem and how much it means to our fans.â€
“The honor was all ours!” said Ernie Haase. “Ed Clark and the folks at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, NASCAR and ESPN treat us all like kings. It was a special treat to get to sing for the drivers, families and crews during the chapel service and anytime we get to represent our country by singing the national anthem is a special time.”
