Motorsports Law

The motorsports industry serves as one of the main economic drivers for Charlotte and its surrounding communities. James, McElroy & Diehl proudly represents track owners, team owners, drivers and motorsports representatives across the full spectrum of racing series, with a particular focus in NASCAR, NHRA, and AMA. We have particular expertise litigating all forms of motorsports-related disputes, including, but not limited to: driver/owner contract issues, engine lease disputes, issues arising between teams, including those that arise upon the departure of a driver from a former team, sponsorship disputes, and problems arising between drivers and their representatives.

James, McElroy & Diehl fully understands the need for discretion in its efforts to settle such disputes without the need for litigation. However, when a dispute cannot be resolved without court intervention, no firm represents its clients more zealously than James, McElroy & Diehl.
