Boxer Floyd Mayweather Launches NASCAR Team at Daytona 500

The Daytona 500 will see the launch of a new NASCAR Cup Series team led by the 15-time world boxing champion.

With Kaz Grala in the driver’s seat for the season finale, Money Team Racing intends to race on a part-time basis for the remainder of the year.

Willy Auchmoody, a former member of the team’s management and a former racing executive, is assisting in the rebuilding of the recently dissolved team.

According to Grala, it’s an honor to be driving for Floyd Mayweather in his NASCAR debut. “As our sport grows in popularity and popularity across the world, this is a genuinely exciting moment.” As a result, I’m confident that everyone associated in this program have the skills required to assist Floyd in succeeding.

Due to the lack of a charter that guarantees them a starting slot, Grala will have to qualify for the race. The 23-year-old has made four Cup Series races with Kaulig Racing, including a 28th-place finish at the Daytona 500 last year in his Cup Series debut.

Pit Viper will paint the Money Team’s Chevrolet in a rainbow of colors and will be recognizable with the number 50, Maywether’s professional boxing record, to commemorate Maywether’s 50-0 professional boxing record.

Floyd Mayweather and Michael Jordan, the other G.O.A.T. player, have taken minority ownership in a NASCAR team. Denny Hamlin, a basketball legend and co-owner, co-founded the 23XI Racing squad, which includes driver Bubba Wallace, last year. This season will see the debut of a second Kurt Busch car, piloted by none other than the great Michael Jordan.

The squad has been working for several years to prepare for their debut race, which will take place at the end of this month. They will be required to compete for admittance into the tournament if they do not have a charter. Kaz Grala will chauffeur them about in his Mercedes.

The No. 50 Pit Viper Chevrolet Camaro raced by The Money Team Racing (TMTR) will be powered by ECR engines in the season-opening race.

“Speed and competitiveness are two of my favorite activities, which I look forward to each year. I know NASCAR would be difficult, but I don’t believe anything simple is worth pursuing.” Floyd Mayweather stated in a team release. The Mayweather name looks to have a nice synergy with the sport of motor racing.

Floyd Mayweather has a perfect boxing record of 50-0, with 27 knockouts and 11 world championship titles to his name.

In 2021, Grala, a 23-year-old rookie, finished 28th in the Daytona 500. He finished seventh in his four previous Cup races and won in the Truck division as a substitute for Austin Dillon at Daytona in 2020.

Tony Eury Jr. will act as the team’s pit box announcer for all of the team’s contests throughout the 2022 season. Michael Kohler, Matt Kohler, and Bill Woehlemann of StarCom Racing will all have ownership holdings in the team.
