The 44-year-old boxing promoter and former prize fighter will team with co-owner William Auchmoody, who will also serve as TMT Racing’s general manager.
“I love fast cars and I love to compete. I know NASCAR will not be easy, but anything easy isn’t worth doing to me,” Mayweather said in a release provided by the team. “With that being said, this move into auto racing seems to be a perfect fit for the Mayweather brand.”
“It’s an honor to be behind the wheel for Floyd Mayweather’s entrance into NASCAR,” Grala said in the team release. “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. We know we will need some time to grow together as a new organization, but I couldn’t be more thrilled to be a part of building this team from the ground up.”
