David singing the NA at Watkins Glen Saturday August 11th

Recommended Posts

Guest Guest
Still don't know which day, but THIS ARTICLE confirms he will be there.

Quote :
Some of those bookings include David Cook, former boxing champion Michael Moore and L.A. Kings Captain Dustin Brown to drop the green flag.


There are two races that weekend, August 11th and 12th. As soon as we know which day he's performing, we will update the title of the thread.

Peg, I'm not sure what you meant, but maybe it's because you knew had talked about it being close to you before, and you don't see that post. That's because I stated a new thread for this... the other discussion was in an interview thread where he mentioned it. That thread is HERE.

I hope that's all that was confusing you, and that everything's okay!

Not only is Dave singing the National Anthem, but he is serving as Grand Marshal and gets to tell the racers, "Gentlemen, start your engines!"

Or maybe not... with women racing now, perhaps it's "Drivers start your engines!" Either way, he gets to start the race!

Quote :

WATKINS GLEN, NY – Platinum selling recording artist and American Idol winner David Cook will perform the National Anthem and give the command to start engines for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Zippo 200 at Watkins Glen International, Saturday, August 11.

Cook rose to fame after winning the seventh season of American Idol in 2008. Since then, Cook has sold over one million records, tallied two platinum singles and produced two top-20 hits. Cook’s first single, “Light On,” sold over one hundred thousand digital downloads in its first week, topping out at 17th on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

As Grand Marshal for the NASCAR Nationwide Series Zippo 200, Cook will deliver the most famous words in motorsports – the traditional call for drivers to start their engines. Additionally, Cook will perform the American National Anthem during the pre-race ceremony.

By the way, ABC will be showing this race live Saturday at 2:00 pm eastern, so tune in and/or set your dvrs. Hope they air the National Anthem!

(I think there's a good chance they might - they are doing a half hour NASCAR series countdown at 2:00, followed by the race starting at 2:30, so cross your fingers that their pre-race show ends - or race show starts - with the NA.)

Hmmm, David really looks like a man now - quite handsome and assured-looking. And of course, his NA rendition is nothing but most respectful and the best.

Excellent job, David! Great

Hi guys.. I am so happy I went.. Hearing the NA live was amazing.. It gave me goosebumps.. It was so worth it. (my sunburn and all) However my day got better.. If any of you follow me on twitter you know what the better part is.. Wink

Here is my brief recap..
After the race started I walk around it see if I could see David either signing somewhere or just walking around.. However after about 45 mins with no luck, I decided to go meet Sharon @1step at Dunkin Donuts for coffee then head home.. (here comes the "better" part of the day) So as I was walking back to my car it happened. I saw David. He was driving a golf cart going in the opposite direction. I stopped turned and started following him. My luck he stopped. As I was walking toward him he then saw me, I waved hi to him and he said hi with a big smile on his face (I believe he might have recognized me by his reaction, at least I want to believe that Wink ) I was quite loud there, so out convo was short. I said "you did an amazing job", he said "thank you" and I asked for a hug, which he said sure. Uber hug The hug was great as always.. Then I walked away. I stopped and said to myself go ask for a picture. So I got my camera out, turned and walked back. At this time he was ordering some food. I waited until he was done ordering. He looked in my direction. I ask if I could get a picture along with gesturing the clicking sign with my finger and he monthed back "yes, sure". He walked over to me took off is baseball cap fixed his hair. Here is the outcome... HeartExcited

Rabrina, So happy for you that you got a chance to see David and get a pic with him!!

I love that David is respectful when singing the anthem. It's a difficult song to sing, and shows the beauty and power of his voice.

Ana, I was just thinking that there is no "boy" left in David. He has definitely grown into his looks and seems to get more handsome as time passes.
