Sayers, Lewis Launch S&L Racing

Mar 23, 2006, 00:00 ET from S&L Racing

    GREENSBORO, N.C., March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Two professional football
 league superstars have joined together to form a new racing team.
     Football hall of famer Gale Sayers and World Champion Most Valuable Player
 Ray Lewis, along with entrepreneur Mark Bloomquist, have formed The Milestone
 Company.  The operation will run both cars and trucks under its new name: S&L
 Racing.  The team will be headquartered in North Carolina.
     S&L Racing's mission is to develop a winning race team that provides
 opportunities for minorities and women in the sport.  To achieve their
 objective, S&L Racing will start from scratch, working their way up to the
 Nextel Cup Series.  The team plans to start racing this season in the NASCAR
 Craftsman Truck Series.  The Milestone Company will work with NASCAR, other
 racing teams and organizations, and corporations to assist in providing
 opportunities for those looking to make a career out of racing.
     "Both Ray and I are racing fans," Sayers says.  "Also, we both have the
 same goals and desire to succeed, to win and to help others.  With S&L Racing,
 we will be able to give people a chance to show what they can do at the
 highest level of sports."
     "As a professional athlete and a racing fan, I'm excited to be part owner
 of a racing team with Gale whose goal is not only to win, but to help give
 people a chance to be winners," Lewis says.  "We've been to Daytona and met
 with NASCAR officials.  We got their official blessing, too!"
     Though S&L Racing is the first venture into auto racing for both Sayers
 and Lewis, excelling in the sports world is nothing new for the two men.
 Sayers, a member of the Pro Football League Hall of Fame, played seven years
 with the Chicago Bears and is considered to be one of the greatest running
 backs in National Football League history.  Lewis, a 10-year NFL veteran with
 the Baltimore Ravens, was the MVP for Super Bowl XXXV and was named the
 league's Defensive Player of the Year in 2001.
