AC/DC Front Man Gears-Up For Daytona

Plenty of Rockers have garages with exotic cars in them. A few put them through their paces on closed tracks. But only a handful put the pedal to the medal in actual races.  Brian Johnson is one of them.  The AC/DC vocalist has signed-on with Predator Performance to co-drive a prototype car in the January, 2012 Rolex 24 at the Daytona Motor Speedway in Florida.  Johnson, who  has owned a number of high-end cars, recently published Rockers and Rollers: A Full Throttle Memoir that chronicles his love of cars.  His favorite among the 60 he estimates he has owned is his 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom, a hunk of luxury still capable of getting him from 0-60 in 5 seconds.  The song he considers the ultimate driving tune is not from his own band, but Eric Brudon & War's Low Rider.
