Thanks for sharing this info!!! I always like to see the list. If I recall correctly, the TV viewers at home don't get to see/hear the driver introductions/songs for this race. I never understood why when the drivers pick the song.

Matt and Regan chose A7X songs... Saw them in concert with Disturbed and Stone Sour last summer, it was a great show!
