The experience for fans attending the Can-Am 500 NASCAR Cup semifinal playoff race at Phoenix Raceway just got a little sweeter, you might say.

Multiplatinum rock band “Sugar Ray” will perform a pre-race concert in the DC Solar Power Pavilion starting at 10:30 a.m. PT on Sunday, November 12.

Sugar Ray broke through on the charts in 1997 with “Fly,” and followed that up with a number of other hits including “Every Morning,” “Someday” and “Falls Apart.”

The Southern California-based band has sold over eight million records worldwide.

The Can-Am 500 is the semifinal race of the NASCAR Cup playoffs. The eight remaining championship-eligible drivers coming into the race will be trimmed to four afterward who will move on to the championship-determining race on Nov. 19 at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
