Kaley Caperton may only be 16 but has had quite an action packed career already! A Texas native, Kaley sings, plays the guitar and the keyboard, lives on a ranch and has rodeoed most of her life. Kaley also comes from a racing family. Her dad raced supercomp and supergas in Divisions 4 and 5, causing her to be an avid Drag Racing Fan. She has never missed a National event at the Texas Motorplex!
With too numerous events to mention each one, some special engagements have been: Kaley opening for Rick Trevino, Michael Peterson, Asleep at the Wheel, and sharing the stage with artists such as Ted Nugent, Lynn Anderson and Johnny Gimble. She has performed in Las Vegas for the Wrangler’s 60th birthday party, sang at the homecoming of the President of the US and she is scheduled to open for The Village People in February and Patti LaBelle in May.
Kaley recently opened for Asleep at the Wheel in Wyoming at the BearTrap Festival in July 2009. She also had the opportunity to sing for the Roundup Riders of the Rockies, which is exclusively male, but gained special permission to sing for them on the mountain top in Steamboat Springs, CO. She will also be singing the National Anthem for the Texas Stampede this November.
This will be Kaley’s third appearance singing the National Anthem at the Texas Motorplex. She began singing here at 14 and has dubbed herself to be one of the mascots for this race and hopes the O’Reilly Fall National Fans do as well!
Kaley will not only be singing the National Anthem on Sunday, but she is excited to host a free concert after the race on Saturday before the DRAW Auction, outside of the Champions Club.
Kaley will be signing autographs and selling merchandise at the Texas Motorplex Souvenir Stand on the Pit Side every day of the race.
The Motorplex is excited to announce that you can now purchase the Official Texas Motorplex Merchandise on the website. Simply go to the Texas Motorplex home page and select Shop Online. The Texas Motorplex has been hard at work creating new merchandise for everyone. Do not miss the opportunity to be the first to show off the new merchandise at the O’Reilly Super Start Batteries NHRA Fall Nationals.
