                                   American Idol Finalist, Dan Marshall
VIR is honored to announce Miss Virginia, Kailee Horvath, and American Idol Finalist, Dan Marshall will take part in our IMSA race weekend ceremonies!
Adding to a long list of achievements, Kailee Horvath was recently named Miss Virginia. Did we mention she’s ALSO an EMT, firefighter, AND nursing student? Yes, you heard that right, she can do anything! Now, she’s adding IMSA ceremonies to her resume. We’re excited to announce that Miss Virginia will be joining us both Saturday and Sunday. She is an inspiration to all, particularly young women as she’s proof you can do it all. Kailee will be available for pictures, autographs, and advice on pretty much any topic, we look forward to welcoming her as part of the weekend.

Dan Marshall joins us this year as the National Anthem Singer. Raised in a Marine Corps family he has a great love for his country and was honored when we approached him. Dan is from Southeastern VA and played football at Virginia Tech. But it’s his love of music that brings him to VIR. Recently one of the Finalists on American Idol, we thought he’d be a great fit to welcome back to Southern Virginia.

He’ll also be playing live at Oak Tree Tavern on Saturday the 28th from 7-9 pm and another time TBD. The concert is included with your race ticket so come up, enjoy a splendid buffet, take a photo with Dan, and enjoy the show! If you’d like to join us for the show, just purchase a race ticket and you’re in! 

Be sure to give them a warm Virginia welcome when you see them August 26-28 during the Michelin GT Challenge and Virginia is for Racing Lovers Grand Prix.
