Slayer is on it’s final tour ever and they wanted to do something special to celebrate. So the band announced they are going to be the primary sponsor for the No. 54 car for an upcoming NASCAR race.
Guitarist Kerry King remarked in a press release, “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 [Yeley] behind the wheel. I’m sure disciples of everyone involved will be completely stoked on the bond between these two fierce entities!”
NASCAR isn’t my go to sport, but man this car looks sweeeeet! -Joey
