Legendary five-division world champion and boxing Hall of Famer Floyd “Money” Mayweather has partnered with sunglass giant Pit Viper to form The Money Team Racing (TMTR), which will make its NASCAR Cup Series debut with No. 50 Pit Viper Chevrolet at the Daytona 500 on February 20, 2022. Driver Kaz Grala will pilot the new NASCAR Next Gen Chevrolet with an engine from ECR Engines.
“I love fast cars and I love to compete. I know NASCAR will not be easy, but anything easy isn’t worth doing to me,” Mayweather said. “With that being said, this move into auto racing seems to be a perfect fit for the Mayweather brand.”
Calling the shots from the pit box will be NASCAR Cup Series winning crew chief, Tony Eury Jr.
The co-owner of TMT Racing, William Auchmoody, an associate of Mayweather’s and a longtime member of the NASCAR community, will serve as the team’s general manager.
