Jeff Moorad’s Passion For Racing

Jeff Moorad used to dominate the sports agent world. He has been listed on The Sporting News’ 100 Most Powerful People in Sports 8 different times during his time as a sports agent. His main focus was on baseball players, which makes sense, considering that he is now a General Partner with the Arizona Diamondbacks. But Moorad does not want you to think that he only knows about baseball. It appears that he is also a NASCAR type of guy.

Jeff wants you to add another bullet to his impressive resume. Along with Tom Garfinkle (chief operating officer of the Arizona Diamondbacks), Moorad is buying majority interest in the Roger Staubach-Troy Aikman NASCAR team [NASCAR Notebook: Moorad joins Staubach-Aikman]. The 2-year-old team currently features driver Tony Raines.

Good luck Mr. Moorad. Buying into a team with Troy Aikman’s name on it has to be a guarantee for success..
