Slayer and Nuclear Blast Records have teamed up with Rick Ware Racing to sponsor their own band branded NASCAR car. JJ Yeley will be driving the car during the “Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race” at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN on August 17.
Tom Araya commented:
“It’s exciting and awesome that Rick and the boys are wearing the Slayer banner making us a part of NASCAR history!”
Kerry King added:
“NASCAR racing and Slayer have a lot in common. Both are extremely fast, intense and aggressive. I can think of nothing more rad than seeing the Slayer logo on Rick’s car with JJ behind the wheel. I’m sure Disciples of everyone involved will be completely stoked on the bond between these two fierce entities!”
This news comes after Megadeth previously got their own branded car.
