Race Team Alliance expects to add NASCAR teams
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Race Team Alliance says the rest of NASCAR’s full-time teams should soon be added to the group that is working on issues facing the sport.
The RTA formed this month as an alliance of nine of NASCAR’s top teams. Chairman Rob Kauffman met with other owners this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and says they are on board with the RTA.
NASCAR Chairman Brian France this week said the RTA wasn’t necessary, and the sanctioning body believes listening “to one voice is just a bad idea.”
Kauffman declined to respond to the comment. He says he’s always had a good relationship with NASCAR officials and everyone has the same interest, which is to improve the sport.
