The NASCAR team is owned by Maury Gallagher and Jimmie Johnson. Its main drivers are Noah Gragson and Erik Jones who drive the #42 and #43 cars, respectively. Legacy Motor Club unveiled its GN’R car, which will be driven by Jones. The car features the classic Guns N’ Roses circle logo on the hood and rose designs all over its body.


Johnson retweeted his team’s announcement and added, “My first concert was @gunsnroses, San Diego Stadium (Jack Murphy) 1992… I can promise you, my 17 year old self did NOT see this coming.”
