LOUDON, N.H. (AP) - The president of 5-Hour Energy says he will ``see how the year plays out'' before deciding on whether to keep its sponsorship with Michael Waltrip Racing.
Scott Henderson says that he wants to win with integrity. He says ``I wonder about integrity'' following the Richmond scandal that has already cost MWR its NAPA sponsorship.
MWR driver Martin Truex Jr. was kicked out of the Chase. MWR was also fined $300,000, general manager Ty Norris was suspended indefinitely and all three crew chiefs for its drivers were placed on probation for the rest of the year.
The energy-shot brand is the primary sponsor for Chase driver Clint Bowyer. Henderson had a friendly chat with Bowyer before the start of Sunday's Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire.
Waltrip said Friday he expected 5-Hour Energy to remain with MWR.
