Credit: Jeremy SafferMegadeth is hitting the racetrack this weekend. Well, sort of.

The thrash legends have teamed up the Richard Childress Racing team to be featured on driver Tyler Reddick‘s No. 2 Chevrolet Camaro when he races the ROXOR 200 this Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The car will display Megadeth’s logo on the hood, along with the band’s Vic Rattlehead mascot.

“Megadeth’s been around for 35 years, and I thought we’d done it all, but being a part of the Richard Childress Racing’s team on their 50th anniversary is mind-blowing,” says frontman Dave Mustaine.

“Megadeth has always been built for speed, and as a NASCAR fan, I’m beyond stoked to have the band represented on this Camaro, with Tyler behind the wheel,” he adds. “We wish him all the best on race day!”

You can watch the Megadeth Camaro in action on July 20 at 4 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
