The Stars Of The Biggest Movie Of The Year Face Off On The Track With Legendary Director Michael Bay Driving The Pace Car!

In addition, Michael Bay, the renowned director of the TRANSFORMERS megahits, will be the official pace car driver for the 50th running of the NASCAR Banking 500 only from Bank of America at Lowe's Motor Speedway.

I'm not a fan of Nascar, but it might be fun to watch to see what other Transformers tie-ins they do with this race or to see if the commentators talk about Transformers at all. Need to put this on the DVR tonight.

1. I can't wait to see the paint jobs!

2. Will Hasbro team up with NASCAR and release some kind of toys (even just a set of RPMs) to match?

Can we blow up Bay's car?

You know he'll love it, it's totally extreme.
He's got some pretty far-out powers to go along with them, too, including teleportation, the projection of trippy telepathic visions and illusions, and the ability to groove on the language of 98% of all known species. To uses his powers to the fullest, though, he's gotta be feelin' good vibrations; bad karma can seriously harsh his mellow, y'know?

I'd be surprised if there wasn't a fiery wreck at some point. I'd also wager there will be pyrotechnics people out at the track too, just for random explosions.

Does anyone like Jeff Gordon? I think Jeff Foxworthy got it right when he said that no one likes Jeff Gordon because "Jeff Gordon enunciates. And there's just no room in NASCAR for that."

LOL. Nope, there are other reasons there is so much hatred for him.

If you watch it you would find out there are quite a few drivers that enunciate when they speak.

Okay, I think I brought this up WAY back during the Super Bowl when the first trailer was released.

I was wondering at the time, with the Daytona 500 not that far away at the time, if it were possible that Transformers were going to do any custom paint jobs on an cars. Well, it turned out not to be the case, but they are doing it now for the DVD release.

When I brought it up, I had a logical connection that I feel they failed to utilize. At the time, I noticed that with Optimus Prime having a blue with red flames paint job, and Jeff Gordon having a blue with red flames paint job, that they'd go together perfectly.

Now they decide to make him Megatron. Which, I guess, would make his special edition paint job stick out more, but still.

Are you being serious or just sarcastic? I'm Colombian like Montoya, so I'm absolutely pulling for him. Third in the Chase baby!

He's a great driver, better than the other Colombian I can remember, Roberto Guerrero. Back in the 80s I think, he was on the pole at the Indy 500, and on the pace lap, he spun out and destroyed the car. #-o

I'm confused. this press release states this event is going to happen tomorrow but I'm watching the Nascar race in charlotte presented by Transformers Revenge of the Fallen right now on TV. Are they going to take scenes from the Optimus and Megatron car and turn it into some other special presentation for tomorrow?

Race was tonight , Saturday. Megatron won, Prime was vanquished, lol. Actually Gordon led a bunch of laps and was in the lead with 15 laps to go. I would pay exorbitant amounts of money to get his driving suit from tonight with the Decepticon logo on the front and on the gloves. His Helmet was even painted like Megatron. If anything there might be a few of the hats like we was wearing after the race on ebay.

The Megatron car was ugly, but the OP car was pretty sweet. They should make an Alternity figure out of it.
