DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- All-Pro receiver Randy Moss is now a
NASCAR team owner, announcing Thursday he's purchased 50 percent of a Truck Series team.
Randy Moss Motorsports will make its debut on July 19 at
Kentucky Speedway with Willie Allen driving the No. 81 Chevrolet.
The number was changed from 46 to reflect Moss' NFL jersey number.
Moss has been eyeing entering NASCAR for some time, but said he
decided to buy half of Morgan-Dollar Motorsports rather than build
a team from the ground up. Moss wants the team to eventually move
up to the premier Sprint Cup Series.
