Candlebox to Perform Pre-Race Concert at Chicagoland Speedway on July 22


Joliet, Ill. – June 19, 2012 Rock band Candlebox will perform on Sunday, July 22, at Chicagoland Speedway as part of the STP 300 pre-race activities.

“The addition of Candlebox to our STP 300 pre-race will bring a great deal of energy and excitement to an already action-packed day,” said Chicagoland Speedway president Scott Paddock. “Following the return of night racing with the American Ethanol 225 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Race on Saturday night, there’s no better way to kick-off Sunday’s NASCAR action like a high-energy rock concert, which Candlebox will surely deliver.”

Candlebox exploded onto the scene in 1993 with their self-titled debut album reaching No. 7 on the U.S. Chart. “Candlebox was certified four times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and featured two of the band’s biggest hits, “Far Behind” and “You”.

“Love Stories & Other Musings”, the fifth studio album from Candlebox, evidences a newfound level of maturity for the band while featuring the same classic sounds. The band remains filled with the youthful exuberance that marked their first go-round in the 1990s, a decade during which they ran off a string of alt-rock classics while selling north of five million albums.
