Vocalist Gary LeVox, multi-instrumentalist Jay DeMarcus and guitarist Joe Don Rooney, members of the Grand Ole Opry and the most-awarded country group of the past decade, are celebrating their 20th anniversary.

Grammer, an actor, comedian and director renowned for his roles on Cheers and Frasier, gives the command to start engines. Gibbs, NASCAR and Pro Football Hall of Famer and owner of Joe Gibbs Racing, offers the invocation from his home prior to the start of the race.
