Can you be a NASCAR owner if you’ve never fielded an entry in a NASCAR race?

Melissa Harville-Lebron is touted as the first African-American woman to “solely” own a NASCAR team. Her race team is called E2 Northeast Motorsports.

E2 Northeast Motorsports has never run a NASCAR race at all. Harville-Lebron has her NASCAR owner’s license and has the rights to the No. 06 in the Camping World Truck Series. But her team hasn’t qualified for a race, let alone attempted one.

Does simply having an owner’s license make you a NASCAR team owner or do you have to enter a race to claim that designation?
