MECHANICSVILLE, Va. (Nov. 13, 2000) Grubb Motorsports is closing its doors after four years of competition in NASCAR's Busch Series Grand National Division, team owner Bill Grubb said Monday.

"Finding a sponsor was our biggest goal going into 2001," Grubb said. "But the few deals we had working fell through, and in this day and age of auto racing, you can't really survive without the support of a sponsor."

Grubb is working to sell the assets of Grubb Motorsports.

"We really have good equipment here," team manager Franklin Butler said. "Buying the whole operation would be the ideal situation for someone just getting into racing. Everything we have -- cars, motors, equipment -- it's all ready to race. If we can't get a buyer for the whole team, then we'll have to sell it piece by piece."

Grubb Motorsports entered the NASCAR Busch Series in 1997 with Grubb's sons, Wayne and Kevin, originally taking turns behind the wheel. Kevin Grubb joined on with Brewco Motorsports at the end of the 1998 season and will remain with them for 2001, while Wayne Grubb has returned to the Late Model Stock car division.
