“It’s an honor to be behind the wheel for Floyd Mayweather’s entrance into NASCAR,” Grala said. “It’s a really exciting time in our sport as it globalizes 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.

Mayweather joins fellow G.O.A.T athlete Michael Jordan as a NASCAR team owner. The basketball legend started the 23XI Racing team with co-owner Denny Hamlin last year with driver Bubba Wallace and is expanding with a second car for Kurt Busch this season.
