“Team Gives Thanks to Season Long Sponsors”
Mooresville, North Carolina (October 26, 2011) – FAS Lane Racing announced today that they have secured an associate sponsorship for the TUMS Fast Relief 500 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race in Martinsville, VA on October 30, 2011 from Yesterday’s Saints, a D.C. based heavy metal band.
“The pairing of a fast car and heavy metal music is something that is a natural fit with NASCAR, it’s the stuff that helps get the team amped-up for a race,” stated FAS Lane Racing owner Frank Stoddard. “We are pleased to help Yesterday’s Saints celebrate a successful year as we remain solidly locked in to the race with our top 35 position and welcoming back Ken Schrader to continue our successful season.”
The Yesterday’s Saints song “Gates of Valhalla” is played on many radio stations in the US and also can be heard in Canada and Europe. The band is wrapping up their 2011 tour and their 2012 tour will start in early spring with stops all up and down the East Coast and European dates in the works
“We are honored to sponsor FAS Lane Racing and Ken Schrader this weekend at Martinsville,” said Yesterday’s Saints vocalist Matt Rice. “We, like many others in metal, respect the hard work it takes to be successful and love an opportunity to support other hard working people doing what they love. We are confident that Ken, along with Frank and the FAS Lane Racing team, will have a successful performance this weekend in Martinsville.”
FAS Lane Racing will also use this weekend’s race at Martinsville Speedway to pay a special tribute to their season long sponsors – US Chrome and Southern Pride Trucking. The two companies were crucial supporters from the beginning as veteran crew chief Stoddard made the move into team ownership. They will share the Primary Sponsorship on the team’s No. 32 entry in the 500 lap event at the Virginia paper-clip shaped track.
“We are using the race this weekend to give special thanks to two of our teams founding sponsors – US Chrome and Southern Pride Trucking,” said Stoddard. “This is the least we could do to show our appreciation for these two valuable supporters of FAS Lane Racing. We also welcome back C & J Energy Services and TMone who will join us this weekend in addition to Yesterday’s Saints.”
About Yesterday’s Saints
Yesterday’s Saints’ sound is a heavy and very intense dynamic musical force and has been compared by some as sounding like a combination of Iced Earth and Amon Amarth. Yesterday’s Saints combines power metal and melodic death-metal with Pentagram alumni Albert Born’s drumming being complex and diverse and Matt Rice’s vocals spanning from guttural lows across 5 octaves to soaring highs. Yesterday’s Saints musical composition, driven by guitarist Witt Black and bass player Phil D’Arcangelis, contains depth and melodic complexity yet does not give up intensity or hook while lyrically maintaining individual song concepts. Their music can be found on iTunes, Rhapsody, and Amazon-MP3.
