CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Two executives with the Arizona
Diamondbacks have purchased majority interest in the NASCAR team
owned by Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach, The Associated Press has
learned.
Jeff Moorad, chief executive officer of the Diamondbacks, and
Tom Garfinkel, the chief operating officer, will be introduced as
the controlling owners of Hall of Fame Racing Sunday at California
Speedway.
Aikman and Staubach, Hall of Fame quarterbacks for the Dallas
Cowboys, formed their race team with three other partners in 2003.
The Number 96 car is in its second full season, driven by Tony
Raines and sponsored by Texas-based DLP HDTV.
The original ownership group, including Aikman and Staubach,
will remain involved as minority owners.
