NASCAR Team Purchased by Arizona Diamondbacks Executives September 2, 2007Posted by claireblang in Breaking News, NASCAR.
Right now I am in the garage at California Speedway where a sunday mid day news conference has just begun – TIDBIT: Here’s what they are announcing right now – Two executives with the Arizona Diamondbacks have purchased majority interest in the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup team owned by Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach. Jeff Moorad, chief executive officer of the Diamondbacks, and Tom Garfinkel, the chief operating officer, were introduced a few minutes ago as the controlling owners of Hall of Fame Racing here at California Speedway. The original ownership group, including Aikman and Staubach, will remain involved as minority owners. But Moorad, who is part of the Diamondbacks ownership group, and Garfinkel will have controlling interest.
