Eddie Smith said Wednesday that he had formed a partnership with former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield to buy the assets of the Chip Ganassi Racing Nationwide Series team, scenedaily.com
Holyfield will co-own the team with Smith and field the No. 42 cars of Chip Ganassi Racing. Journeyman Hendrick hopes to run the full season for the team, that will have provisional starts thanks to last season's point standing. Hendrick has 29-career Nationwide Series starts to his credit with less than satisfactory results to show for.
