Kevin Costner Partners with NASCAR

Veteran actor Kevin Costner and his band, Modern West, are taking a spin with NASCAR -- and ET has the story!

The Academy Award-winning actor and NASCAR are partnering up for a year-long deal that will include an appearance by Costner at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards banquet on Dec. 5; the narration of "The Ride of Their Lives," the newest NASCAR film; and the premiere of Modern West's new video, "Backyard," on on Monday, Dec. 8

"As a long time NASCAR fan, I'm very excited about this partnership," said Costner. "They have tremendous fans, which are truly the most passionate in all of sports."

"Backyard" is from the band's debut album, Untold Truths, which was released on Nov. 11, and was performed in the motion picture, "Swing Vote.' It was also performed during a pre-race concert before the Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway earlier this year.
