MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- Former Minnesota Vikings coach Dennis Green has formed a partnership with the owner of a dormant NASCAR team and plans to start racing in May.

Green and Darwin Oordt, owner of the dormant Galaxy Motorsports Winston Cup team, made the partnership public Thursday. Their company will be called Denny Green Racing, LLC.

"I have always had a passion for NASCAR the planning, the strategies, the pure adrenalin rush of having 750 horsepower engines and great athletes racing around the track, bumper to bumper, lap after lap," Green said in a prepared statement.

"I know that Darwin and I will work hard together to secure the best sponsors, talent and equipment to insure consistency and excellence both on and off the track."

This will be Green's second new venture since being forced out as head coach and general manager of the Minnesota Vikings. He also plans to appear on a weekly TV program about fishing.
