BLADEN COUNTY, NC (WECT) – A girl from White Oak, NC will be the center of attention at the Coca Cola 600 this holiday weekend.
Brooke Butcher, 18, will sing 'God Bless America' at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. This is a big race - one of the top three racing fans really enjoy aside from Daytona and the Southern 500.
Butcher told us there are expected to be 250,000 people in the audience. That's the biggest crowd she's ever performed in front of in her life.
Butcher, who plans to attend UNCW in the fall, hopes the appearance will help launch a singing career.
You can watch the race on Fox Wilmington on Sunday, May 26.
