I doubt I will be pulling some NAPA knowhow anytime soon, but I sure do respect NAPA for taking a stance (it’s always about the money) on the shenanigans pulled by Michael Waltrip racing at Richmond.
A statement from sponsor NAPA on Thursday read: “After thorough consideration, NAPA has made the difficult decision to end its sponsorship arrangement with Michael Waltrip Racing effective December 31, 2013.
“NAPA believes in fair play and does not condone actions such as those that led to the penalties assessed by NASCAR. We remain supportive of the millions of NASCAR fans and will evaluate our future position in motorsports.”
Team co-owner Michael Waltrip insisted that his team was not immoral following the penalties.
Keep on believing that Michael Waltrip … it doesn’t change the fact that your team was caught cheating, and trying to screw over Jeff Gordon, which was not really appreciated by Gordon’s fans.
