August 12, 2019

Iconic thrash metal band SLAYER will join Rick Ware Racing as the primary sponsor on the No. 54 entry at Bristol Motor Speedway, promoting the band's final world tour. Piloting the Slayer Chevrolet is Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series veteran JJ Yeley.

SLAYER is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California. After nearly 40 years together, the band is conducting one final world tour, "The Final Campaign", which takes place in several major U.S. cities from November 2 through November 30.

"It's exciting and awesome that Rick and the boys are wearing the SLAYER banner making us a part of NASCAR history!" commented SLAYER bassist/vocalist Tom Araya.

"NASCAR racing and SLAYER have a lot in common," added SLAYER guitarist Kerry King. "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."

Commented Yeley: "I 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 honor."
