Former NASCAR team owner aims a dig at NASCAR and their decisions in 2020

While NASCAR successfully concluded its 2020 season amid a lot of uncertainties,  it was not a good year for some people in the sports. 

One of the persons who was not happy with NASCAR and their decisions in 2020 is Leavine Family Racing owner Bob Leavine. Having run a team from 2011 until the end of the 2020 season, Leavine had to close down the operations of his team at the end of 2020.

Leavine expressed his criticism of NASCAR in a Twitter post. When a user asked, “If you had 1 million dollars, what would you do with it?”, Leavine replied:

“Stay away from NASCAR.”

Another user asked why the owner was in the NASCAR business if he hated it, to which Leavine said that he didn’t hate NASCAR but the decision they made in the 2020 season.

The team owner was already critical of NASCAR’s charter system back in August, saying that his team didn’t get much out of the system.

“We definitely did not get out of our charter what we put into our charter.

“So, from our standpoint, it is very difficult to say that it was a great investment. It just allowed us to run full time for the five years after we bought it. That’s the best thing I can say for the charter system.”

The assets of Leavine Family Racing was bought by Spire Motorsports, who will run a two-car team in 2021.
