CURB/NASHVILLE artist LeANN RIMES will open the ceremonies in LONG BEACH, CA for the 36th Annual TOYOTA PRO/CELEBRITY RACE on SATURDAY, APRIL 14th when she sings “The National Anthem.” Following RIMES’ performance, stars from film, television, music and sports will get behind the wheels of identical TOYOTA SCION TCS to drive the 10-lap, 1.97-mile street circuit through the streets of LONG BEACH.
"We are honored that LeANN RIMES has agreed to sing the 'Star-Spangled Banner' before the race -- and the fans trackside will be thrilled to have the opportunity to hear her perform," said TOYOTA's National Motorsports Manager LES UNGER. "Her participation here will help bring even more attention to the cause we at TOYOTA hold dear: children's hospitals and RACING FOR KIDS.”
