Nashville, TN…(August 15, 2012)…Country Music Star Bucky Covington was ecstatic on Saturday August 11th
when he got the chance to drive a Legends Race Car and play a full band
show for fans at the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, all in support
of Help The Good Guys. Although Covington only got a few practice laps
the week before the race, he had a strong finish in the middle of the
pack with no damage to the car. The track presented Bucky with a 7-foot
tall trophy to recognize his work on behalf of Help The Good Guys, an
organization that supports fire fighters injured in the line of duty.
Also, attendance at the Fairgrounds Speedway was boosted because of the
Covington’s involvement in the weekend’s festivities, reaching a final
count of over 10,000 spectators.

“I’m always glad to do what I can to support injured fire fighters
through Help The Good Guys,” says Covington,  “and getting to experience
driving a race car for the 1st time made it that much more
memorable. I am so thankful to the Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville and
to the Young Racing family for giving us such a meaningful
opportunity.” Proceeds from the race and concert go to Help The Good
Guys, an organization providing immediate financial relief to fire
fighters and their families who have been injured on duty.

Saturday was a very busy day for Bucky kicking off in Dickson, TN at 9am to participate in Country Superstar Craig Morgan’s 6th
Annual Charity Motocross Ride, and then off to the Fairgrounds Speedway
in Nashville to qualify for the Legends Race at 2:30. Covington then
signed autographs for fans before putting on a full band show and then
jumping behind the wheel of his fire-engine themed racecar complete with
working siren. Bucky would have loved to stay for the rest of the
races, but had another show later that night also in Nashville.

Wrapping up a fun-filled weekend, Covington is ready to get back on the
road to finish up the busy summer touring season. Bucky’s tour schedule
is not the only reason he will be busy in the coming months. His new
single “Drinking Side of Country,” the duet with Shooter Jennings, is
generating quite a buzz with over 2 million views for the video in less
than a week. The song can be found on his sophomore album GOOD GUYS, releasing September 11th with a portion of first week sales benefitting Help The Good Guys and the IAFF Charitable Foundation.
