Napa Pulls MWR Sponsorship 9/20/13
CHARLOTTE, N.C.- NAPA Auto Parts says it will end its multimillion-dollar sponsorship of Michael Waltrip Racing at the end of the year. That's the latest fallout from the team's attempt to manipulate the race in Richmond two weeks ago to get Martin Truex Jr. into NASCAR's version of the playoffs.
Napa is Truex's primary sponsor and in the first year of a three-year extension announced last August. The deal ran through the 2015 season and is believed to be worth at least $15 million a year.
