NAPA, 5-Hour Energy Reviewing Relationship With MWR Following NASCAR Sanctions
Two of Michael Waltrip Racing’s sponsors are “reviewing their relationships" with the team following its "attempt to manipulate the finish" of Saturday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond Int’l Raceway, according to Jenna Fryer of the AP.

NAPA Auto Parts today posted on its Facebook page that it is "disappointed that a partner would make 'such a significant error in judgment.'" NAPA is the sponsor for Martin Truex Jr., who was “kicked out of the Chase for the Sprint Car championship when NASCAR sanctioned MWR for its actions in Saturday night’s race.” Fellow MWR Driver Clint Bowyer’s sponsor 5-Hour Energy “tweeted it is reviewing its sponsorship relations internally” AP

In Toronto, Dean McNulty wrote of the penalties levied against MWR, "My immediate reaction was 'Is that all?'" The effect of the "whole thing was to discredit NASCAR and MWR has done it in spades." NASCAR President Mike Helton "should have suspended the entire MWR organization from racing for the rest of the season." MWR Owner Michael Waltrip "should have been banned for life from NASCAR."
