    Ray Evernham for NC Governor!!!! Imagine that, he'd put a ban on urban sprawl and build more tracks instead.

    NASCAR's Ray Evernham buys small dirt track

    Tuesday, December 2 (updated 3:58 pm)

    By The Associated Press

    MOORESVILLE (AP) - NASCAR team owner Ray Evernham has bought a small North Carolina dirt track to preserve what he said is a disappearing venue for nourishing up-and-coming drivers.
    Evernham announced Tuesday that he acquired the East Lincoln Speedway in Stanley from Ralph and Joanne Nantz, who opened the 3/8-mile dirt track in 1990. The sale price was not disclosed.
    Evernham said rising property values and land development have closed many dirt tracks, which budding drivers need as a safe, low-cost place to race
    The 51-year-old Evernham won three NASCAR titles as a crew chief with Jeff Gordon. He sold most of his interest in the Gillett-Evernham Motorsports racing team last year and said he plans to retire from the sport's top level.
