The car is emblazoned with Slayerâs signature imagery and heavily features the bandâs logo. It will make its debut this Saturday at Tenneseeâs Bristol Motor Speedway.
âItâs exciting and awesome that Rick and the boys are wearing the Slayer banner making us a part of NASCAR history!â shared Slayer frontman, Tom Araya.
âNASCAR racing and Slayer have a lot in common,â guitarist Kerry King added. âBoth are extremely fast, intense and aggressive. I can think of nothing more rad than seeing the Slayer logo on Rickâs car with JJ behind the wheel. Iâm sure Disciples of everyone involved will be completely stoked on the bond between these two fierce entities!â
JJ Yeley expressed his excitement over the opportunity to drive such an aesthetically triumphant vehicle, âI 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 honour.â
It is truly a sight to behold, check it out below.
