Tim Brown becomes NASCAR team owner


Recommended Posts


"And Brown also announced an unlikely venture -- he hopes to become the first black majority owner of a NASCAR team. Brown, a Dallas native with no background in auto racing, plans to partner with Roush Racing on a team based in Charlotte, N.C., and to begin competition next year.

"It's going to be a big deal to try and get accomplished, but I think it's going to be great to try," said Brown, who said he was approached by Roush Racing for the job. "Obviously there's a diversity issue that needs to be addressed [in NASCAR]. They thought I was a good guy to do it."

Like Joe Gibbs, Tim Brown is high profile and should help the marketability of NASCAR. Teaming with Roush will only help

improve his chance at being successful.
