Rapper Pitbull becomes NASCAR team co-owner

Rapper Pitbull on Friday (January 15) became part of the Trackhouse Racing Team’s ownership group ahead of their NASCAR Cup Series debut season.

‘Mr. Worldwide’, real name Armando Christian Perez, shared the news on his 40th birthday via his Twitter page, saying he was a longtime NASCAR fan since the 1990 movie ‘Days of Thunder’.

“I’ve been a fan of the NASCAR story since the movie ‘Days of Thunder’, now I’m an official co-owner of the @TeamTrackhouse racing team. Thank you Justin Marks, Ty Norris & Daniel Suarez for the great opportunity.”

Trackhouse will debut in a Chevrolet Camero, driven by lone Mexican-born driver Daniel Suarez, at the Daytona 500 on Feb. 14

Pitbull becomes another high-profile name to enter NASCAR, after basketball great Michael Jordan, who last September, announced a partnership with three-time Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin to form a new team that will feature Bubba Wallace as its driver.
