If you've got a band (and it doesn't have to be original music), we've a competition that could net you two full days of studio recording time at Always Be Genius Recording Studio in Crown Point, some cool Guitar Center gear, AND a chance to not only play at Chicagoland Speedway on September 13th, but also the chance to play at the Chicago Ale Fest the weekend of September 19th. This is HUGE!

Here's how it works:

- Submit a high quality mp3 below along with your band contact info by 8/11/14 to be able to be at our first preliminary round on Saturday, 8/16 at The Shed in Highland Park. Additional entries will be accepted up until 9/1 for a 2nd preliminary round at MT Barrels in Schaumburg on Saturday 9/6. and if that wasn't enough, we'll give one final chance for a band to be selected from all online entries to play on 9/13 with winning bands from both of the 8/16 and 9/6 preliminary rounds!

- We'll select two bands, one from each preliminary round from entries received AND one additional lucky entry selected by the Drive staff to have a total of three bands competing LIVE at Chicagoland Speedway on Saturday, September 13, 2014 before the NASCAR Nationwide Series Jimmy John's Freaky Fast 300 powered by Coca-Cola.


Bands will be selected to play at one of two "FAST PASS" rounds with the WINNER GOING TO THE FINALS AT THE CHICAGOLAND SPEEDAY!

Saturday 8/16 @ The Shed in Highland Park
Saturday 9/6 @ MT Barrels in Schaumburg


- The Drive's on-air DJs, and a few friends from well-known Chicago bands, plus the roaring crowd of NASCAR fans judge which band will win!

- The winning band will receive two days of recording studio time at Always Be Genius Recording Studio in Crown Point, Guitar Center gear valuing $1,500, and a chance to play at the Chicago Ale Fest during the weekend of 9/19-9/20.
