Examining the claim of the first black woman to 'solely own' a NASCAR teamMelissa Harville-Lebron has been touted for three years as the first black woman to solely own...

Melissa Harville-Lebron is touted as the first African-American woman to “solely” own a NASCAR team. Her race team is called E2 Northeast Motorsports. E2 Northeast Motorsports has never run a NASCAR race at all. Harville-Lebron has her NASCAR owner’s license and has the rights to the No. 06 in the Camping World Truck Series. But her team hasn’t qualified for a race, **let alone attempted one**. __Does simply having an owner’s license make you a NASCAR team owner or do you have to enter a race to claim that designation?__

Swipe to go to another post.

The fact that they've never (yet) even attempted to get a get a vechicle into a Nascar race... I can't (yet) call them a Nascar team.

You can be just about anything, if you have enough money..

How long they will suck at doing it, until they have success?..

But they're NOT doing it... they're NOT even ATTEMPTING to qualify (at least not yet, they haven't).

I can go signed up for the NFL draft (anyone more than 3 years out of high school can)... but if I don't even attempt to make an NFL roster... am I still an NFL player?

Being a player and being a owner are two different things.

Obviously all it takes is money to make you a owner..
If it took money and having to qualify, they wouldn't be a owner.

If you suck at playing football, no one will want you, even if you say you'll play for free..

If you suck at playing football but you're a billionaire, you have a better chance of becoming a owner.

You're right they're two different things, so let me take another, different shot at it.

But as a sport team owner, doesn't one need an actual team that actually plays the sport in question?

I guess they do but over the years, there's been owners of teams...that have sucked for years,
It didn't stop them.

I didn't read the article.

Are you saying she's a owner without drivers or a crew?

From what I can tell... which is limited...

She only has a Nascar license (which gives her rights to use the number 6 in Nascar), two sons and a dream.

She's been saying she's GOING TO run a truck (#6) since 2015, but long story short, it doesn't sound like she can afford the financial costs to do it.

Early this year... she sponsored a different team to run their truck in a Nascar race with her logos on it (but that was a sponsorship deal, she didn't own it) and the company that did own it, said they had a 3 race deal which they were mislead to believe there was funding for.

In other words, her Nascar team, MIGHT lack both a car and a team, but certainly lack financial funding.

It sounds like to me, her unplanned dream is going to run her broke.

Should've picked something she knows about to throw her money at.

But they don't seem to have the money, nor a Nascar nor a driver, nor a team... she only has a piece of paper that gives her the rights to use the number six on her car... If she had one.

And yet somehow even without a car and without a team... She's claiming to be a Nascar team owner.

I would have a NASCAR team with strict instructions for my drivers to choose their driving style as they wish. It might be counter-clockwise, it might be the opposite. At least, the crowd would be pleased to see some great crashes.
