Alum Isn't Spinning His Tires

MU Alum Races Onto NASCAR ’15 Soundtrack

John Scargall reached a pinnacle moment in his career when he recently had two songs featured in the official NASCAR ’15 video game released in May. His song, “Leave It On The Track” is used as the main theme in the game.

Since graduating from Millersville with a bachelor’s degree in business administration in 2012, Scargall has been hard at work pursuing a career that combines his passion for music and his skills in business earned from his time at Millersville. While attending school, Scargall owned and operated two businesses.

“The business background I was given at Millersville University has definitely given me an advantage in the music business, especially when it comes to dealing with corporate partners,” said Scargall. “In today’s music industry, the strategic partnerships between recording artists and brands are crucial to success. Being business-savvy makes it easier to start and cultivate relationships with the key decision-makers at potential sponsoring brands. Most musicians just don’t have the background to do that.”

Scargall will continue performing at select NASCAR events across the country through November and plans to release his debut album as early as October. Scargall revealed “big things” are also on the horizon that he cannot yet reveal. Those looking to follow Scargall through his career can do so at www.johnscargall.com and on Twitter @JohnScargall.

Editor’s Note:   Millersville has now started an “Entertainment Technology” major that equips students with the balance of technology and the performing arts.
