HIN’s Nightshift brings live entertainment and motor sports to Chicago, Part I
IRVINE, CA – July 18, 2006 – XM Satellite Radio’s Hot Import Nights (HIN) returns to Chicago for its second stop this year, this time for a Nightshift event, with drifting, specialty cars and all-star performances from the Ying Yang Twins, T-Pain and Da Muzicianz. Presented by Valvoline Synpower, Nightshift visits Soldier Field on July 29 from 4-11 p.m. for a Nightshift unlike any other so far. Media are invited to arrive at 3 p.m. to experience the Chevy Cobalt Coupe SS Supercharged, equipped with GM Performance Parts’ Stage II supercharger kit on the Chevy auto cross course.
D-Roc of the Ying Yang Twins will perform with fellow Ying Yang Twin, Kaine, and his true-life brothers, Da Birthday Boy and Mr. Ball of Da Muzicianz. Nominated for a Grammy as the “Best Rap Performance for a Duo or Group” in 2005, their most recent album, United State of Atlanta, is certified platinum. Fellow southern rapper, T-Pain, will join the pair onstage. His Gold debut album, Rappa Ternt Sanga, features the radio hits, “I’m Sprung,” and “I’m N Luv (Wit A Stripper).”
With the popularity of the Nightshift format at its premiere last season, this HIN special event is back in select markets in 2006. Unlike the first HIN 2006 that took the Windy City by storm in March, this Nightshift event will feature drifting demonstrations, and sport bike exhibitions. Scion will host their Scion Exposed competition before Nightshift from 3-6 p.m., where the best of the Scion world will compete. Awards will be given to Scion owners and their cars in the categories Best of Show, Best Audio/Video, Best Exterior and Best Interior. Also the week before Nightshift, Dunlop will host the Dunlop Roundup at noon at Waukegan Tire on 80 South Green Bay Rd., featuring one-on-one talks with the NCCA pros, sponsorship opportunities, food, cars and music.
