Motorsports Business Management team owner Carl Long, driver David Starr and seven other team members contracted COVID-19 after last weekend’s NASCAR races at Phoenix Raceway, Long said on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio Nov. 13.
“We did finish the race out at Phoenix, but myself and eight of my team members contracted (COVID-19) on the way back,” Long said on SiriusXM. “It seems me and David Starr are the ones that are suffering the most. I’m not as bad as I was, but this is a rough disease.”
