GNR Crash


The GUNS N' ROSES-Sponsored NASCAR Car Crashed

Everyone's fine.

Today's been a real mixed bag for Guns N' Roses. The good news is the band just announced their massive world tour that'll keep them out on the road for a good chunk of 2023. The bad news is that their Guns N' Roses-sponsored car driven by Erik Jones in the Daytona 500 crashed and got taken out of the race.

"It looked like the [car number] 45 got turned around, but I couldn't see how it happened or how it had happened, but regardless, we spun off there on the bottom trying to get around and then got hit, left side hard enough to take out the left rear and just kind of end our day," Jones told about the crash that occurred with 12 laps to go in Stage 2 and 82 laps to go in the race.

"So, it is what it is. We went out, we were racing, we were doing all we could and, you know, we were just in the wrong spot at the wrong time. Wish we could've been a little ahead of him."

Guns N' Roses vocalist Axl Rose seemed to have a slightly sunnier outlook on the situation, saying the race was "exciting."

"The race was exciting!! Congratulations to [Daytona 500 winner] Ricky Stenhouse Jr! Erik Jones was doing great! Sucked he got taken out! Was great to [be] a part of such a huge n' historic event! All the best to the Legacy Motor Club going forward!! Thank you and everyone at NASCAR for letting us be a part of your world!!"

Guns N' Roses had one of the most profitable rock tours in 2022, grossing $93.3 million across 27 shows with 1 million attendees. So it's probably safe to assume that this world tour will land the band somewhere on that chart again this year.
