WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) - Roger Penske says none of his employees were poached by other NASCAR teams despite what driver Brad Keselowski believes.
Penske says the defending Sprint Cup champion had ``misinformation'' when he accused Hendrick Motorsports and Joe Gibbs Racing of luring away Penske employees in an effort to steal information.
Keselowski's comments led to a stern rebuke from Rick Hendrick and Joe Gibbs, as both team owners blasted the driver for spreading false information.
Penske said before Saturday's race at the Milwaukee Mile that Hendrick called him to discuss the situation and Penske considers it ``a non-issue.''
Penske says any employees the organization lost were either no longer under contract or not being renewed as part of downsizing the engine shop.
