Baltimore Ravens perennial All-Pro linebacker Ray Lewis? football career has always been closely associated with speed.
Now, the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year will be connected to a different kind of velocity after partnering with retired Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers to form a NASCAR racing team.

Lewis, Sayers and businessman Mark Bloomquist have combined to establish S&L Racing, which will run cars and trucks and be headquartered in North Carolina. They plan to begin this season with a team in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.

?As a professional athlete and a racing fan, I?m excited to be a part-owner of a racing team with Gale, whose goal is not only to win but to help give people a chance to be winners,? Lewis said in a prepared statement. ?We?ve been to Daytona and met with NASCAR officials. We got their official blessing, too!?

S&L Racing?s mission statement includes a goal of working their way up to the Nextel Cup Series while providing opportunities for minorities and women to get involved in auto racing.

?Both Ray and I are racing fans,? said Sayers, a Pro Football Hall of Fame member. ?Also, we both have the same goals and desire to succeed, to win and to help others. With S&L Racing, we will be able to give people a chance to show what they can do at the highest level of sports.?

I'd like to see The Bus get involved in ownership of a team.

This seems to be the "in" thing for football players lately. Kind of like rappers and clothing lines.
