Why are there no factory teams in NASCAR and IndyCar?

In the world of NASCAR and IndyCar, a common question is why there aren't any factory teams. Factory teams usually have a direct connection to car manufacturers, but in these circuits, teams are independent, buying cars and parts from manufacturers. It's largely due to the fact that these sports focus on driver skill and strategy over vehicle performance. The rules also limit the modifications that can be made to the cars. This levels the playing field and keeps costs down, making the sport more accessible for different teams.
