Pictures from the lastest transformers movie seem to suggest that NASCAR is going to be playing a role in it.

While the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series was racing at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, NASCAR style racecars adorned in the colors of Juan Pablo Montoya, Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr. were competing in downtown Chicago in a little race of their own; complete with armor and machine guns.

Fans who were at the location sent snapshots of cars painted to resemble the Chevy’s of the No. 42, 48 and 88. The cars were morphed and included loads of heavy weapons. [see link]

Last year the cars of Jeff Gordon and Ryan Newman bore special paint schemes of the movie during the fall race at Charlotte, but there has been no word on the exact involvement of NASCAR.
