Killswitch Engage partners with NASCAR for Xfinity Series paint scheme
Killswitch Engage are following closely on the heels of other metal stars in their partnerships with NASCAR. After the success of his Megadeth car in July, Richard Childress Racing's No.2 team and driver, Tyler Reddick will be sporting a new paint scheme this weekend.
Let's just hope this new paint scheme doesn't end up in a situation like the Slayer NASCAR deal a few weeks ago.

"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." Killswitch Engage lead vocalist Jesse Leach says of Gimmer Radio.
"On top of that, our band will be represented on a stock car in NASCAR," continued Leach. "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."
