DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) Kid Rock will perform a pre-race concert at the Daytona 500 in February.

Daytona International Speedway said Friday he will play several hits as well as new single "First Kiss."

Kid Rock's appearance coincides with the launch of his album "First Kiss." The album will be released Feb. 24, two days after the showcase race.

He joins a long list of past pre-race performers at the Daytona 500, including Luke Bryan, Zac Brown Band, Lenny Kravitz, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and Bon Jovi.

Daytona International Speedway President Joie Chitwood III calls Kid Rock an "avid NASCAR fan" who will provide fans with a "spectacular performance."
