"I love fast cars and I love to compete. I know NASCAR will not be easy, but anything easy isn’t worth doing to me."
"With that being said, this move into auto racing seems to be a perfect fit for the Mayweather brand."

"He [Mayweather] loves cars. I met him a couple of years ago and had the conversation, 'Man, you should check NASCAR out'.
"He started watching it a little bit and next thing you know, I'm in Las Vegas and were hashing out the details of what it would look like to get involved in NASCAR."
