NHRA.com reports that Funny Car racer James Day, the son-in-law of mega-team owner Don Schumacher, has landed a major sponsorship deal with rock-n-roll legend Stephen Pearcy and Top Fuel Records. Day and his DLS Motorsports race team will compete at all 24 races with Dave Fletcher and Chris Nance sharing tuning duties.Pearcy is the frontman for the platinum-selling heavy metal rock band RATT who is continuing his involvement with NHRA Championship Drag Racing after a successful run with Top Fuel driver Clay Millican in 2007. Millican was sidelined indefinitely when his team owner, Evan Knoll, scaled back his racing interests. "It's really exciting for me to start with a team from ground zero," Pearcy said. "They remind me of a hard core rock band chasing something they're so passionate about. This year marks the 25th anniversary of RATT and 2008 is the Year of the Ratt on the Chinese calendar so we are definitely ready to Ratt n' Roll this season." Read the entire article at NHRA.com.
