CHARLOTTE, N.C. ‚?? NASCAR‚??s newest team owner bought into its premier series with every intention of building a competitive team.

Brandon Davis vowed he won‚??t collect quick paychecks ‚?? send driver David Stremme on the track to ‚??start and park‚?Ě ‚?? to build his foundation.

Davis, CEO of oil and gas company Swan Energy, announced he acquired Inception Racing in late August. His first race as owner was at Richmond, where Stremme pulled off the track after 127 laps.

‚??I literally almost got sick,‚?Ě Davis said Tuesday. ‚??I couldn‚??t stand watching it, I am a competitive person and I am not going to the race track to not try to win races. I respect start and park programs and I understand why teams do it because it is a matter of survival and the teams are trying to build something. It‚??s just not the way I am going to build my team.‚?Ě

Stremme drove the No. 30 Toyota last season for Inception, but was a ‚??start and park‚?Ě for 20 of 28 races.

Davis wants him to go out and race next season for the rebranded Swan Racing, which will still be the No. 30 Toyota and use engines from Triad.
