"Growing up in North Carolina, my parents would take my brothers, sisters & me to races, and I've been a NASCAR fan my whole life. The opportunity to own my own racing team in partnership w/my friend, Denny Hamlin, & to have Bubba Wallace driving for us, is very exciting for me."
He added"In addition to the recent commitment and donations I have made to combat systemic racism, I see this as a chance to educate a new audience and open more opportunities for Black people in racing."
As for Bubba, he left the Richard Petty Motorsports team earlier this year after the noose scandal. Check out Bubba's tweet where he called this a once in a lifetime opportunity!
