The latest Super Eurobeat track was produced in collaboration with a NASCAR star, Akinori Ogata.

Released yesterday was "RED ZONE" by Ray Hikari ,featuring the sounds of Japanese driver Akinori Ogata. Using elements of his actual car in action, the high-speed, synth-heavy track blends styles found in the notable genre with the atmosphere of an exciting NASCAR race.

The story explained in the lyrics is also inspired by Ogata and the track was produced closely with the racecar driver himself. This is shown even further in the song's music video, which features actual footage of Ogata racing.
