“It’s an honour to be behind the wheel for Floyd Mayweather’s entrance into NASCAR,” Grala said, who will be driving the No50 Chevrolet Camaro. “It’s a really exciting time in our sport as it globalises and reaches new audiences. I know Floyd is here to win, and I absolutely feel that everyone involved in this program is capable of making that happen. We know we will need some time to grow together as a new organisation, but I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of building this team from the ground up.”
Mayweather isn’t the only US sporting legend to have his own NASCAR team – Michael Jordan’s 23XI squad made its debut last year with Bubba Wallace, winning at Talladega. That team will now expand to two cars, having hired 2004 Cup champion Kurt Busch to also drive.
