Who from NASCAR made cut in The Forbes 400?

  When it comes to NASCAR participation in Forbes newest list of the 400 richest people in America, let's just say it's little lacking.

  Only two NASCAR team owners made the list and one doesn't involved himself in the day-to-day operations of his team.

   John Henry, 64, owner of the Boston Red Sox and co-owner of Roush Fenway Racing, is listed at No. 327, worth approximately $1.7 billion.

   Longtime NASCAR and IndyCar series owner Roger Penske also made the list, in a tie for 386th. Penske, 76, is worth an estimated $1.3 billion.

   The only other NASCAR entry? Jim France, 68, chairman of International Speedway Corp. and vice chairman of NASCAR, is ranked No. 273, worth estimated $2 billion.
