It sounds like NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a fan of the new Metallica album 72 Seasons, for the racer recently shared that there’s a song on the album that has him itching to drive.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. is one of the biggest names in NASCAR today. Along with driving for NASCAR, he is also a co-owner of JR Motorsports, which is a car racing team.
Over on his Twitter account the other day, Earnhardt posted a tweet where he wrote about a song off of the new Metallica album that has him really pumped.
That song is none other than “Crown of Barbed Wire.”
Per Earnhardt’s tweet, he shares the following about the new Metallica song:
“Metallica ‘Crown of Barbed Wire’ playing in @JRMotorsports fab shop right now. Worth about a solid tenth a lap.”
It is very cool to hear that Earnhardt is enjoying tunes off of 72 Seasons. One Twitter user replied to Earnhardt’s tweet saying “you damn right. @Metallica rules-need to sponsor a car would be badass.” Now that would be amazing.
Speaking of NASCAR and metal – have you seen the footage featuring the accident the Guns N’ Roses-branded NASCAR was in? It’s pretty wild.
If you want to check out that footage for yourself, follow the link to the story below.
