Didn’t see that coming. Wondering if this is a part of a potential big announcement? Guess I might watch for a few minutes just to see the car. Ha!

Watching noisy cars go round in circles is not my thing.  I'm more of the demolition derby type but this is still cool.  GNR has a fast car!

I'd watch if they were actually still stock cars.

Good looking car with Guns N Roses running down its side.

You must be super old if you remember watching stock cars.  They haven't been stock in 50 years.

Chrysler had the last stock car back in the 70's if I remember correctly.  Took a while but evolution happen and they were completely gone by the turn of the century.  Yes I'm super old.  Motorcycles have a similar history.  When do you think we'll see the first electric car in these races?

It's sad you go down that list of sponsors and see how many car related companies are missing.  None of the big oil or tire companies.  It's not about the cars any more.

Joe Gibbs is already using an electric car for pit stop practices.  I believe we will see hybrid before the end of the decade and electric by the mid 30's.  Hopefully sooner.

I really want the whole scoop on how this went down and why.  You don't drop a million dollars for a sponsorship for nothing.

I think I really want some merchandise.   hihi  I need a hot wheels car that looks like that.  And maybe a t-shirt.

This will be fun following this car all summer.  Checked out our driver, "that Jones Boy".  He looks a little clean cut for GNR but he use to race trucks.   Cool  And Richard Petty is in the owners group.  You don't get much more race car then that.  Looking forward to this.

Far as I know it's only for one race, the 500.

Noooo.  Do it all summer, this could be fun following the GNR car. 

I was reading if the car wins they put it up on a pedicle for a year.  I'm thinking if he's see the checkered flag, down shift and let some other fucker fly by and put his car up on blocks for the season.

Darn I hope they run it all season.

Oh no, that was before my time. I'm just a car guy who would be interested to watch actual competition between cars that anyone can buy being pushed to their limits.

I was at the end of that time.  I miss watching guys tinker with their cars.  Talk of what they wanted to buy to sup that car up.  Hanging out in the garage.  Didn't understand what they were talking about but it was still fun handing them tools, rebuilding carburetors, pumping up the brakes.  I rarely try to work on a car now, think about it but there's nobody to talk it through with so off to the shop it goes.

He seems thrilled and star struck to be carrying the GNR tag.  Still, a little clean cut for GNR but he drives a fast car.  How many band members do you think we can squeeze in that car with him?  They want to hang with him.  Cheesy

OK so I don't know anything about car racing, can someone explain to me what's the point for GNR to sponsor a car?

just for fun because Axl is a fan? for business for whatever reason?

I'm assuming it's the same reason why anyone would want their logo on someone else's clothing, mode of transport etc.

Promotion.

This deal already generated attention for GN'R, the team and driver. The car will be seen on TV during the race weekend.

What are your thoughts Jarmo? Seems a bit out of the blue for GnR to do this. Could it be a prelude to some other happenings for the band?

It's a different way to promote the band for sure.

Creates buzz. So that's cool.


I would assume so. I'm not sure what people expect it to mean.
