Can't continue to cheat like he has from the day he started up in Cup racing. It's all on him.

What a excuse spewing fool Waltrip is... read the crap he said again, he still doesn't get it. How do you deny everything, then say "we put them in that position"?

Napa has been with Michael Waltrip one way or another as long as I can remember and apparently this stunt has cost him. I think that its really bad that sponsors don't stay with drivers like they used to, but after what happened at Richmond, I don't blame Napa in this one at all.

Truex is to good to be without a ride next year. Someone will snatch him up. And yes his own teamed screwed him thats the bad part. He shouldnt have been part of the penalty as he did nothing wrong but race his way in. Unlike lagano that wuss.

Waltrip is not only a cheater but a thief also. When he was racing in bathe min cup series he was caught stealing money from several driver's lockers. This was before the days of the big motor homes. Darrell even made a comment in one of the racing pApers the hedidn'tknow who he was. Didn't hec also get involved in something that was stolen from Jack Roush's team? Maybe this will keep him out of the booth also.

I hate it for the rank and file at MWR that had nothing to do with this mess but will probably lose their job because the Village Idiot owner allowed Norris to try to cheater another one of their cars into the chase. I'm hoping NAPA is smart enough to tell Truex to find him a home and they will go with him. The NAPA colors would look great on the Furniture Row Chevy.

I only hope that now, whoever is in charge, will remove his butt from the commentary booth. He and his butt friend, Phil Parsons, must have something on somebody to get that job. Also " boogity boogity let's go racing boys" has run its course. Get rid of big bro too.

It`s not like Waltrip teams are the only one cheating, they just got caught but you can bet all teams cheat one way or another they`ve just been lucky and haven`t got caught, Yet!!

I would say more intelligent rather than lucky.

There has always been and always will be cheating in NASCAR. Always trying to ride that fine line. The thing is.. There is cheating and there is "In Your Face" cheating. What MWR did was "In Your Face" cheating and this is what got them in so much trouble.

For those wanting MWR out of business, just remember that it only further consolidates power to 3-4 teams...and then you'll complain how few teams can win....

I don't want MWR out of business... In fact, I didn't want NAPA to leave MWR. Smack them around a bit, but leaving completely? NO!! I think NASCAR brass handled the situation right, letting all teams know that "In Your Face" cheating will not be tolerated. Only thing I think I would have done different was boot Bowyer out of the chase. Oh and I would have hit Penske and Front Row a little harder than just probation because I think that was "In Your Face" cheating too.

What they did was no different than allowing a teamate to lead a lap for the point. Get over it. Waltrip is an amazing story. The number 3 driver was his best friend. That should say something
