Slayer Branded Car Set For 2019 ‘Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race’


Slayer are the latest member of the big four to get their own band branded NASCAR car. The group and their label Nuclear Blast Records have joined up Rick Ware Racing as the primary sponsor for the no. 54 car to be driven by JJ Yeley at the impending ‘Bass Pro Shops NRA Night Race‘. Slayer vocalist/bassist 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!”

Slayer guitarist 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!”

The event will be held this Saturday, August 17th, at the Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, TN. If you missed the news, fellow thrash band Megadeth got into the NASCAR business earlier this summer.
