Can you be a NASCAR owner if you’ve never fielded an entry in a NASCAR race?
says Zolfie on Jun 12th 18 (#820499)
The fact that they've never (yet) even attempted to get a get a vechicle into a Nascar race... I can't (yet) call them a Nascar team.

You can be just about anything, if you have enough money..
How long they will suck at doing it, until they have success?..
says DandyDon on Jun 12th 18 (#2777210)
But they're NOT doing it... they're NOT even ATTEMPTING to qualify (at least not yet, they haven't).
I can go signed up for the NFL draft (anyone more than 3 years out of high school can)... but if I don't even attempt to make an NFL roster... am I still an NFL player?
says Zolfie on Jun 12th 18 (#2777223)
Being a player and being a owner are two different things.
Obviously all it takes is money to make you a owner..
If it took money and having to qualify, they wouldn't be a owner.
If you suck at playing football, no one will want you, even if you say you'll play for free..
If you suck at playing football but you're a billionaire, you have a better chance of becoming a owner.

You're right they're two different things, so let me take another, different shot at it.
But as a sport team owner, doesn't one need an actual team that actually plays the sport in question?
says Zolfie on Jun 12th 18 (#2777245)
I guess they do but over the years, there's been owners of teams...that have sucked for years,
It didn't stop them.
I didn't read the article.
Are you saying she's a owner without drivers or a crew?
says DandyDon on Jun 12th 18 (#2777250)
From what I can tell... which is limited...
She only has a Nascar license (which gives her rights to use the number 6 in Nascar), two sons and a dream.
She's been saying she's GOING TO run a truck (#6) since 2015, but long story short, it doesn't sound like she can afford the financial costs to do it.
Early this year... she sponsored a different team to run their truck in a Nascar race with her logos on it (but that was a sponsorship deal, she didn't own it) and the company that did own it, said they had a 3 race deal which they were mislead to believe there was funding for.
In other words, her Nascar team, MIGHT lack both a car and a team, but certainly lack financial funding.
says Zolfie on Jun 12th 18 (#2777258)
It sounds like to me, her unplanned dream is going to run her broke.
Should've picked something she knows about to throw her money at.
says DandyDon on Jun 12th 18 (#2777278)
If you have enough money you can buy anything. Wish I wasrich
says LorraineTwevlehundredRaineTwelvehundred on Jun 12th 18 (#2777211)
But they don't seem to have the money, nor a Nascar nor a driver, nor a team... she only has a piece of paper that gives her the rights to use the number six on her car... If she had one.
And yet somehow even without a car and without a team... She's claiming to be a Nascar team owner.

I would have a NASCAR team with strict instructions for my drivers to choose their driving style as they wish. It might be counter-clockwise, it might be the opposite. At least, the crowd would be pleased to see some great crashes.

What about zigzags? Those might be better than circles all the time.
says Zolfie on Jun 13th 18 (#2777895)
Seriously get in there girl!
says TomboyJanet on Jun 14th 18 (#2778603)
I think she still needs money, car, driver and a crew still...
But somehow she's a owner already?
