I guess some time freed up for Dave Mustaine with the recording of Megadeth's 15th studio album completeled. Mustaine announced on Twitter that this Sunday, August 9th he'll be racing at the historic Watkins Glen International raceway at Watkins Glen, N.Y as part of the 2015 Spring Cup Cheez-It 355.
Mustaine will be driving a pace car and is treating the event with the humility he's known for:
See you at #NASCAR this weekend @WGI. I'll be leading the field in the Pace Car w/ nothing but race cars behind me! @NASCAR @mattfullcircle

Congrats @mattkenseth on your #NASCAR win. If you are going to win this weekend, you’re going to have to pass me. :-) #PaceCar @WGI @NASCAR

Looking forward to practice laps driving the #NASCAR Pace Car at The Glen. @WGI

For fans craving music and not pace car announcements, Mustaine promised new music later in the month:
Some killer announcements this month …pretty sure some new music too!

I guess we'll be waiting.
