For their upcoming tour, Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), original member Ross Valory (bass), and longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer), are welcoming virtuoso drummer Steve Smith back into Journey, marking the first time he will perform with the band since 1998.

“The 100th Running weekend will be an unprecedented celebration at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Journey is the first piece of the tremendous entertainment that will be offered,” said J. Douglas Boles, Indianapolis Motor Speedway president. “Miller Lite Carb Day has become bigger and bigger every year and this promises to be the best yet.”
Miller Lite Carb Day will again feature great action on and off the track. The field for the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 will have one final hour of practice to prepare for the race, and top teams will participate in the annual TAG Heuer Pit Stop Challenge. Also, stars of the Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires will compete in the Freedom 100 race. Journey will take the stage following those activities.
The 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500 will be held on Sunday, May 29.
