MÖTLEY CRÜE's VINCE NEIL Named Honorary Crew Member At Las Vegas Motor Speedway
According to Jayski.com
, MÖTLEY CRÜE
singer Vince Neil
was named an honorary crew member of NASCAR
driver Carl Edwards
and the #99 team at Las Vegas Motor Speedway earlier in the month.
, a Vegas resident, participated in a variety of track activities throughout the day, including a visit to the Sprint Experience with Carl Edwards
and comedian Carrot Top
. He continued to shadow Edwards
during the day making his way to the driver meeting and introductions before heading to pit road to watch Edwards
and the "crue" turn in a strong fifth-place finish.
A former racer himself, Neil
joined the crew members for lunch during the day and even took time to meet with guys at the pit box pre-race for some added motivation.
"It was cool to have Vince Neil
with us last weekend at the track," stated Mike Lingerfelt
, front tire changer for the No. 99 Ford. "Besides being a talented musician, he is a great person and fun to hang out with."
The team decided that it would be a great idea to expand upon this newfound relationship at the upcoming Food City 500 in Bristol this weekend. They selected one of MÖTLEY CRÜE
's most recognizable songs, "Kickstart My Heart"
, to be used in driver introductions when Edwards
took the stage on Sunday.

had to say about the crew's choice in the clip below.
