LOUDON, N.H. - Roger Penske said his team didn't do anything wrong in the Richmond scandal that rocked NASCAR.
Penske was at New Hampshire and back at a NASCAR track for the first time since the sport's big embarrassment. He insisted his team was in the clear and knew nothing about a deal with Front Row Motorsports to get Joey Logano in the Chase.
Penske said his team had "no deal" with Front Row.
He also said he's yet to make a decision on Sam Hornish Jr's future. Hornish leads the Nationwide Series standings but has no Cup ride for 2014. Penske says he told Hornish to look around at other offers.
5-Hour Energy not yet decided about MWR
LOUDON, N.H. - Michael Waltrip Racing is still seeking a sponsorship boost from 5-Hour Energy.
The president of the energy shot company refused Sunday to give a firm commitment that 5-Hour Energy would remain with MWR and sponsor Clint Bowyer's car in 2014.
"We'll see how the year plays out," company president Scott Henderson said Sunday.
Michael Waltrip said Friday he expected 5-Hour Energy to remain with MWR.
But Henderson appeared to have made no decision.
"There's a lot of talk about integrity," he said. "When the guy who's in charge can say, ‘I can do whatever I want and I'm going to do it and I just did,' I wonder about integrity. I want to make sure we can win in this sport, OK?"
