Slayer declared previously, they were sponsoring the No. 54 entry at Bristol Motor Speedway in conjunction with Rick Ware Racing to promote the trek. The car, named the Slayer Chevrolet, is being operated by JJ Yeley. Sorry, Ricky Bobby, not so fast on this one. Looks like the other sponsors are poor sports and complained to NASCAR and got the Slayer’s sponsorship pulled.
Slayer just sent out a press release stating they’ve been pulled:
Last week, Slayer announced that it had joined Rick Ware Racing as the primary sponsor for the No. 54 entry at the Bristol Motor Speedway. Yesterday, reportedly due to ultraconservative concerns from other long-time participating sponsors, Slayer has been pulled as the primary sponsor, and all Slayer signage has been removed from the car that was to be piloted by Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series veteran, JJ Yeley. The incontrovertible PODS Moving & Storage will now sponsor that car.
After nearly 40 years, Slayer remains as terrifying to some as ever.
The sponsorship was to support Slayer’s final tour dates. Slayer’s final trek will be bolstered by Primus, Ministry, and Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals. Check out the car’s design beneath.
