Default New NASCAR Team.....

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.?

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