NAPA Auto Parts will end its multimillion-dollar sponsorship of MWR at the end of the year, the latest fallout from the team's attempt to manipulate a race to get Truex 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.
Waltrip said Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway that he hoped Truex will stay with the organization. Waltrip says he ``will not hold him back'' if another team wanted to sign Truex.
