Seeking Skill-based Meritocracy... More HP Less DF

Jordan Bianchi reports this morning that the self-named (how yucky is that) Rowdy Busch has sold his racing team to Spire, who seems to need a more spacious shop. As for KDB's motivation to sell, it seems that life as a team owner is a lot more difficult when the Toyota gravy train ceases to pour bountiful amounts of money, personnel, and other resources...
Spire Motorsports purchased perennial NASCAR Truck Series contender Kyle Busch Motorsports on Wednesday, KBM announced.
Spire acquiring KBM, owned by two-time Cup Series champion Kyle Busch, will allow Spire to relocate from its current shop in Concord, N.C., to KBM’s expansive 77,000-square-foot shop in nearby Mooresville, N.C.
KBM’s larger shop will allow Spire to effectively better manage its expanding Cup Series team, plus its own Truck Series program that is expected to continue operating in some capacity next year. Spire’s recent expansion to three Cup teams catalyzed it to begin inquiring and eventually strike a deal with Busch to buy KBM.
