DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - NASCAR has reinstated suspended Michael Waltrip Racing executive Ty Norris.
Norris was suspended indefinitely in September after the race team was caught trying to manipulate the finish of a Sprint Cup race at Richmond International Raceway. Norris was heard on radio ordering driver Brian Vickers to pit to help teammate Martin Truex Jr.'s finishing position.
The fallout from the scandal cost Truex a spot in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, MWR was fined $300,000 and Truex's sponsor, NAPA, left the organization. The team was forced to lay off 15 percent of its workforce, and Norris was demoted from general manager to executive director for business development.
He no longer spots in a NASCAR national series. NASCAR says Norris remains on probation.
