NAPA will "review" partnership with Michael Waltrip Racing

   Complete text of NAPA statement via Facebook on Michael Waltrip Racing:

    Dear Facebook Fans and the NAPA community,

    The actions taken by Michael Waltrip’s Racing team this past weekend leading to the penalties assessed by NASCAR, are very concerning. We are disappointed that a partner associated with our organization would make such a significant error in judgment. In addition, we have launched our own review to determine the future of our partnership with Michael Waltrip’s Racing team. The NAPA AUTO PARTS organization is proud of its long-standing NASCAR relationship. We share a passion with our customers for high quality racing and seek to determine the best course of action for our customers, NASCAR fans, and the NAPA organization.



  1. They all cheat....some get caught!

    With the advent of "Teams" this is an expected outcome. NASCAR is too big business. I've never replaced my "Rusty Wallace" Miller Lite tee shirts, and I can only stand to watch the TV for mere minutes at a time. Most weeks I don't even bother anymore. Track seats are generally empty, too.

    Does it even matter who will win the Chase now?

  2. No, not all cheat.

    Why NAPA teamed with Michael Waltrip instead of Ron Hornaday remains baffling - that deal was supposed to be Hornaday's in 2001, and I have no idea what changed.

    NAPA needs to end its association with Waltrip, a long-established psychotic.

  3. They need to take him and his brother out of the tv booth
