The RoysThe Roys Race into 2009 by Partnering with TRG Motorsports to Provide Music, Prizes and Promotions to NASCAR and Country Music Fans All Along the Race Circuit!

Nashville, TN - The Roys will be kicking off their partnership with the NASCAR team of TRG Motorsports at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida for an exciting start to the 2009 race season. After meeting the TRG Motorsports team in 2008 and attending several events, Lee and Elaine Roy started working with the team to find ways to bring more to their fans. Several cities on the circuit are targeted for exclusive performances the night before the race, exciting promotions, giveaways and more!

Lee Roy, one half of the brother-sister duo, talks about his love for racing, “I’ve been a fan of racing for a long time. I remember watching "The Intimidator", Dale Earnhardt and seeing the black number 3 make its way up the field. There’s just something about the adrenaline you get from watching a traffic jam going 200 miles an hour. I was so excited when we got the call to go hang with TRG Motorsports at Nashville Superspeedway, but then to do it again at Bristol – the track of all tracks – was a dream come true! I couldn’t think of a better fit for us! NASCAR fans are country music fans!”
