INDIANAPOLIS - Country music superstar Jason Aldean will perform at Indianapolis Motor Speedway the day before the Indianapolis 500.
IMS announced the concert via Twitter early Monday morning. The Aldean show will take place at the infield stage at turn 4.

Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president in a news release. "Adding a concert featuring an outstanding entertainer like Jason Aldean is a fantastic way for fans to cap off a day of honoring our current and past drivers and get geared up for ‘The Greatest Spectacle in Racing’ that will take place the next day."
