Multi-Platinum rocker, founder and frontman of the rock band Ratt, Stephen Pearcy, joins the newly formed NHRA Funny Car team of Ideal Racing and Motorsports Lifestyle Apparel company PiranaZ as their promotional frontman for the season, kicking off at the 50th Anniversary of the NHRA Winter Nationals in Pomona, CA on February 11th.

"We're gonna light the candles on the PiranaZ Hot Rod this weekend, stick it in the show then see what happens on Sunday" said Stephen Pearcy, founder, frontman, and the voice of Mega-Platinum selling rock band Ratt. 

"It's exciting to see a start up team with such good talent and promising future. When I heard Tony [Shortall] and Jeff [Diehl] were starting their own team, I had to give them a call and let them know I wanted in, too! Sure other bands have been in and outta the NHRA, but since the old days I've been dedicated and will remain out here hanging out with my friends and fans smelling some nitro" said Pearcy.

He will also bring his record label and recording artists from Top Fuel Records along with his new guitarist Carlos Cavazo (former QUIET RIOT) to Pomona to welcome the fans, Ideal Racing marketing partners and to rekindle his long time passion for the sport of NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing.

Ratt's new album Infestation is out on April 20th. Hear the first single "Best of Me" right here.
