Bill Romanowski is the latest former NFL player to turn into a NASCAR car owner. Romanowski acquired a minority stake in the newly formed Swan Racing team.
Swan Racing will field the No. 30 car this season in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series with Michael Waltrip running the Daytona 500, and David Stremme taking over after that. In addition to being part-owner Romanowski’s company Nutrition53 will be splashed upon the hood of the No. 30 car for 10 races, and it will be a secondary sponsor for the other 26 events of 2013.
“I am thrilled to jump into the NASCAR world as a part owner and as a sponsor,” Romanowski said in a team press release. “Brandon has a vision for how to build a championship contender and I’m eager to be part of it.”
The big question though is: Will Romanowski do what his former NFL’ers couldn’t? Stick around.
