Brantley Gilbert performed at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway as part of the events surrounding the big NASCAR race there this past weekend. The country star always jumps at the chance to play at NASCAR events since he's such a big fan of the sport. In fact, he recently went out for a couple of laps with NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Brantley says, "That joker can drive the hell out of some race cars. So I think I became a fan that day of his. He’s just an awesome guy, and it was great hanging out with him.”

Like most race fans, Brantley loves to see a good pile-up on the track.

"I do like watching wrecks," Brantley admits. "I think there’s a few of us out there. It’s fun, you know, when they get a little bit out of control. I don’t want nobody to get hurt."

You can catch Brantley on his Let It Ride tour all summer long. His concert dates are posted at BrantleyGilbert.com .
