Former Rangers pitcher C.J. Wilson jumps into auto racing and car sales

Why Fresno????

So apparently former Rangers and Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson has some interesting post-baseball plans lined up already.

“I’m a rookie car dealer now,” he told Fresno’s KFSN-TV on Wednesday.

He’s bought a Porche/Audi/BMW dealership in Fresno, Calif., and looks to get into auto racing as well as selling cars at his new dealership.

In his interview with the station, Wilson said that racing has always been part of him.

“I’ve been into racing since I was a kid. I started karting when I was 6 or something, going to dirt track events my whole life,” Wilson told the station. “My dad was on a pit crew and got me into it. Now it’s going to be a big deal. I don’t have to hide it anymore, there’s no contract violations to worry about or anything.
