France family explore sale of NASCAR.

The France family, which controls NASCAR, is working with investment bank Goldman Sachs to identify a potential deal for the company, according to Reuters' sources, who cautioned that the deliberations are at an exploratory stage and no agreement of any kind is certain.

Professor D!ckweed is bidding one '76 Nova with a 350 that will only take a little bit of work to get running...but "running" means you will be able to start it, still need to find your own tranny to throw in there.

My money is on Tony Stewart. He already owns The All Stars Circuit of Champions Sprint car series and Eldora Speedway. NASCAR would be the crown jewel.

That Dumb [censored] that killed CART will get it if he wants it, Tony George.

I would like to see Vince McMahon take ownership, WWE and NASCAR are very similar since they are both staged....

But really I would like not a single person take it, but something like a board of directors made up of track owners, since it's their future on the line.

Yes, it was founded by Bill France Sr.

Maybe a new owner can switch the focus from kit cars to a series of race cars that are designed and built by the teams.

I wouldn't mind seeing a group of team owners buying NASACR similar to how CART/Champ Car came into existence. The only possible downside would be someone like Penske having too much power over other teams.

In order to be a 'crown jewel', you need to be highly desirable.

Based on the panning shots of the stands, and apparent attendance (or lack thereof), NASCAR isn't very desirable right now.
