Ross Chastain has won two of the last five races, including a last-lap pass to win Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway, posted five top-three finishes in 10 races in 2022 and is part of Trackhouse Racing — the season’s most surprising NASCAR Cup Series team led by owner and former driver Justin Marks.

His team’s business partner Pitbull aka “Mr. Worldwide” has noticed the success and is giving Trackhouse Racing a shout-out in his new single “Can’t Stop Us Now” with country-rock superstar Zac Brown out on all platforms Friday.

In addition to Pitbull’s 89 million social media followers, the song will be heard billions of times by his music fans in Asia, the Middle East, Australia, Latin America and the United States.

NASCAR fans attending or watching Sunday’s Cup Series race at Dover Motor Speedway will see Chastain’s No. 1 Chevrolet Camaro carrying the “Can’t Stop Us Now” logos promoting both the song and Pitbull’s 50-event “Can’t Stop Us Now” North America concert tour that begins in July.

For Chastain, the 29-year-old Alva, Florida, native who is an eighth-generation watermelon farmer, it’s been one of those overnight success stories that took a lifetime to achieve.

After his traditional smashing of a watermelon after the victory Sunday, he’s spent the week doing media including national television and radio appearances. Now he’s helping one of the most popular entertainers on the planet promote his song and concert tour.

“How cool is all of this right now,” asked Chastain who said he texted with Pitbull on Monday because he was unable to come to the phone when Pitbull called victory lane in Talladega on Sunday. “Justin got to talk with him, but I was too busy jumping around hugging everyone and doing the victory lane stuff. I really want him here in victory lane with us someday soon.”

Chastain’s remarkable success in 2022 has him second in points if the playoffs were to start today. He’d like to climb one spot higher in the standings by winning Sunday in Dover.

If he does, this time he vows to take Pitbull’s phone call.
