Killswitch Engage Tyler Reddick NASCAR

Tyler Reddick and the No. 2 Richard Childress Racing team will enter the opening race of the 2019 NASCAR XfinitySeries Playoffs with a big dose of celebrity draw, thanks to Gimme Radio and metal band Killswitch Engage.

Following the success of Megadeth's paint scheme at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Killswitch Engage will now take center stage on the No. 2 Gimme Radio Chevrolet at Richmond Raceway to celebrate the release of their new album, Atonement, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart and at No. 2 on the Billboard Top Albums Chart last month.

"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," said Jesse Leach, lead vocalist of Killswitch Engage. "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," 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."
