Sheryl Crow turned out to be the perfect choice to perform the pre-event concert for the Coke Zero 400 Powered by Coca-Cola NASCAR race at Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Fla., July 6. Sheryl apparently has a love of fast cars and high speeds, dating back to her high school days, a fact that she shared with several media outlets prior to her show.

"I grew up on motocross bikes," Sheryl said. "My first car was a Z28 with glasspacks and headers and cherry bombs, the whole thing." She added, however, that she fell short in the area of proper car maintenance "Nobody told me that I was supposed to change the oil in it, so then I had to buy a new short block for it a year after I drove it to college," she said. Sheryl noted that she currently owns a 1964 Corvette.

Sheryl performed an hour-long concert, which included her new single, "Easy," before the big Daytona race, and had the crowd rocking. Her first country album, Feels Like Home, will hit stores on Sept. 10.
