Brantley Gilbert’s Image to Cover Car at the Indianapolis 500
Brantley Gilbert may not be a race car driver, but he’ll be on the track at the Indianapolis 500.
The ‘Bottoms Up’ singer is sponsoring rookie Sage Karam’s car along with Comfort Revolution, and Gilbert will be plastered on the recently-signed development driver’s neon yellow No. 22 Dreyer & Reinbold Kingdom Racing Chevrolet at the 98th Indy 500 on May 25.
Gilbert and Comfort Revolution will also adorn Jamie McMurray’s No. 1 Cessna Chevrolet SS during the Coca-Cola 600 — and, get this: it’s on the same day. The country star will have his hands full, going from Indianapolis to Charlotte, N.C. for two different races, and he’ll also be performing at the pre-race concert at the Coca-Cola 600.
Gilbert is signed to Big Machine Label Group, headed by Scott Borcetta, and they’re certainly not strangers to sponsoring cars on the track.The label was a secondary sponsor of two recent winning cars: Dan Wheldon’s in 2011 and Dario Franchitti’s in 2012, according to Indy Star.
In addition to making the rounds on the race track, Gilbert will also be busy promoting his new album, ‘Just As I Am,’ which streets May 19.
