Washington, December 6 (ANI): Kevin Costner has inked a deal with NASCAR and is set to make personal appearances for the American racing giant while lending them his tunes.

The two-time Oscar-winner and his group, Modern West, will launch their debut video Backyard on on December 8 for which Costner has already made an appearance at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards banquet on December 5.

The actor-producer is also scheduled to lend his voice for the new documentary The Ride of Their Lives that touches upon the motor racing world.

“As a long time NASCAR fan, I”m very excited about this partnership, Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

The Academy Award-winning director had formed a relationship with the largest sanctioning body of stock cars in the United States when his country-rock band had given a performance during a pre-race concert before the Coke Zero 400 on November 11. (ANI)
