After the glorious sound of high-pwered race cars circling the Hamilton County Speedway during the 6th Annual Summit USRA Nationals, Join us Thursday and Friday night after the races under the Spangler Automotive Hospitality Tent for live music from Nashville recording artist John Riggins.

Riggins grew up competitive in his hometown of Westfield, Indiana. From sports and volunteering his time to those in need to performing the traditional Outlaw Country Music he loves, John has always been one to excel at everything he does. He started out just him and his guitar, playing for tips at any venue that would have him in Indianapolis and surrounding counties. From there he formed a band and competed against over 30 bands at Indy's biggest country music venue—The 8-Second Saloon—which led to opening for national acts such as Darryl Worley, Jason Michael Carroll and Mark Wills.
