Poison frontman Bret Michaels will perform a free concert prior to the start of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway next month.

Michaels will play at the speedway’s AAA Stage at Victory Plaza on Sunday, May 6 before the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, according to a news release.

The charity-driven concert, according to Dover International Speedway officials, will feature Poison songs and solo hits from Michaels.

The May 4-6 weekend will feature a triple-header with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, NASCAR XFINITY Series and Cup Series.

The musician is no stranger to performances at NASCAR events. Michaels played the pre-race concert at Darlington Raceway prior to the Southern 500 in 2017.

Michaels is also slated to headline the pre-race concert this weekend at Texas Motor Speedway prior to the O’Reilly Auto Parts 500 Sunday.
