Killswitch Engage Sponsored Camaro Set For NASCAR Race This Week


Killswitch Engage have partnered with Gimme Radio, the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing team and driver Tyler Reddick for a Killswitch Engage branded No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro. That car will be driven at the opening race of the 2019 NASCAR XfinitySeries Playoffs later this week.

The car sponsorship came about via Gimme Radio, who will be hosting a ‘Killswitch Engage day’ this Friday, September 20th. Reddick will also be taking part in those festivities prior to driving the car in the above-mentioned race later that night at the Richmond Raceway in Richmond, VA.

Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach commented:

“I know I speak for all the guys when I say how excited we are to work with Gimme Radio on a Killswitch Engage Day. They have a ton of great programs and DJs that bring a whole new level of interaction, dedication, and discovery to the metal genre and we’re eager to show our support. On top of that, our band will be represented on a stock car in NASCAR.

Never thought I’d see that happen ever! Crazy stuff. This collaboration is unique for us and I truly feel it will expand our audience and further the reach of our music and message. Big thanks to Richard Childress Racing for the opportunity and to Tyler Reddick, who will be behind the wheel for the big race.”

Reddick added:

“Having Gimme Radio and Killswitch Engage on our No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro at Richmond this week is such a cool opportunity for me. Killswitch Engage is a band I listened to a lot while growing up and traveling the country racing dirt late models, so to be able to help them promote their new album with the Richmond race weekend is really special to me. I’m really looking forward to interacting with the band and fans on the app on Friday before we go out and give this paint scheme a great night in the opening race of the Playoffs.”

A similar partnership between Richard Childress Racing and Gimme Radio saw Reddick drive a a Megadeth-branded car earlier this year.
