Elaine Roy commented on being an honorary crew chief, “NASCAR for me is a new experience. I had always seen it on television but I experienced it live for the first time at the Nashville Superspeedway and was amazed at what happens behind the scenes before the races!! Then when the race began I really felt the adrenaline rush that all the fans experience. It was very exciting and what a thrill it was to be there!!!”
As a matter of fact, The Roys have been very busy! Most recently, they returned from Washington, D.C. where they were the exclusive entertainment for the official departure of President George W. Bush at Andrews Air Force Base. They performed the National Anthem and other songs for the outgoing President and the crowd that came to bid him farewell.
In 2008, you may remember seeing The Roys walk the Orange Carpet at the Academy of Country Music Awards in May, perform the National Anthem at Fenway Park in Boston in July, or whip up some great southern cooking with Hazel Smith on Southern Fried Flicks in November, all while touring with “The Possum”, George Jones. With success on the Music Row charts with three singles in 2008, The Roys are ready to race into 2009 and bring the NASCAR fans with them.
“We are just as excited about this partnership as The Roys are about auto racing,” said Team Principal, Kevin Buckler. “The Roys are a real class act and their dedication to country music mirrors our dedication for racing. We are really looking forward to working with them to give back to our fans through this concert series and promotions that we have planned along the way.”
TRG Motorsports has a lot planned for their season-opener at Daytona International Speedway. The team will field an entry for the youngest Canadian stock car racing champion, J.R. Fitzpatrick in both the ARCA RE/MAX Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, before making their debut in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in the prestigious Daytona 500 on Sunday, February 15, 2009.
