The International Motorsports Association has been sold, but not to the group of five team owners who had been negotiating the purchase. Roberto Muller, a sports-marketing "maven" from Uruguay, is the new majority owner. Charles Slater retains a minority interest in IMSA.

Muller is owner of the Muller Sports Group, who have the National Basketball Association as one of their clients. Muller was once a driver is South American road races. He is the former president of Reebok.

Muller is a long time business associate of Andy Evans, who will be involved in the running of IMSA. (Exactly how was not stated.)

AutoWeek magazine feels that Muller's purchase of IMSA will lessen the likelihood of closer cooperation with the SCCA. The team owner group had been having talks with the SCCA about this.
