SLAYER Is Sponsoring A NASCAR Car To Promote Their Final Tour
Slayer is currently out on the final leg of their worldwide farewell tour. Not to rest on their laurels in the final stretch of their career, the band is now sponsoring the No. 54 entry at Bristol Motor Speedway in partnership with Rick Ware Racing to promote the trek. The car, dubbed the Slayer Chevrolet, is being driven by JJ Yeley.
Slayer guitarist Kerry King and Yeley have both commented on the collaboration.
"NASCAR racing and Slayer have a lot in common" said King. "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!"
"I am super pumped to have the legendary metal band, Slayer, on my Rick Ware Racing No. 54 Chevrolet for one of the greatest races of the year, The Bristol night race! Being able to showcase the legacy that Slayer has created over the past 40 years is a true honor," commented JJ Yeley.
Slayer's final trek will be supported by Primus, Ministry, and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. Win tickets to the tour here and check out the car's design below.
