"Our goal is to take what we've learned into other racing cultures and change that from open wheel to stock cars," O'Donnell said. "We're nowhere near where we want to be, but we want to bring the NBA model where players come to the U.S. from other countries. We want drivers to race in premier NASCAR leagues around the globe but aspire to race in the U.S. NASCAR started in the South, but every sport that's shown growth has fans and sponsors internationally."
"We get approached every day," O'Donnell said. "We've had 20 groups approach us from China. But most of them are one-offs. We keep pushing back and saying we're going to do this but in a smart way. If you can show us how we build stock-car racing, that's something we want to pursue."
