Tommy Baldwin Takes Risk and Forms Own CupTeam

Tommy Baldwin rises from the ashes of the economic fire that hit NASCAR at the end of the season and starts his own team while other owners are down-sizing their teams and staff, merging together other teams, or pleading guilty to tax fraud.

 

In my opinion Baldwin is either one shrewd business man or he is a few fries short of a Happy Meal for trying to do this during these economic times - but then again this is coming from a guy who is seriously considering buying stock in General Motors so if Baldwin is a few fries short I must be missing the whole freakin' meal deal myself.

 

Right now NASCAR - like GM - needs people to take risks to help the sport to continue to grow and remain competitive and get past the current economic troubles.

 

I applaud Baldwin for taking this chance and even if he isn't successful, and fails, he will find a home elsewhere in the NASCAR community faster than a qualifying lap at Bristol because people will remember what he did and the jobs he provided when they were needed.
