It's one of the most iconic venues in all of racing and this Sunday NASCAR's Monster Energy and Xfinity Series drivers will take another crack at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.  And this year there's a special honor that goes along with the Sunday Monster Energy race.

Big Machine Records is the title sponsor of the 24th annual NASCAR Brickyard 400.  Brantley Gilbert will perform a pre-race concert and as a result this year's event has been named the Brantley Gilbert Big Machine Brickyard 400.

More details about the multi-year agreement between Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Big Machine Records will be announced this weekend.  When you consider the lineup of stars that Big Machine Records has it could be an interesting partnership.  How about Justin Moore as next year's headliner at Indy?  Or Thomas Rhett, or Florida Georgia Line, or Jennifer Nettles, or Cadillac Three.  There's a long list of stars, but one I'd be very surprised to see doing a pre-race concert at Indy would be Taylor Swift, but stranger things have happened.
