DOVER, Del. (AP) - Michael Waltrip Racing co-owner Rob Kauffman says there's a ``low probability'' he'll fund sponsor-strapped driver Martin Truex Jr. in 2014.
NAPA Auto Parts announced early this month it was ending its multimillion-dollar sponsorship of MWR at the end of the year in the wake of the Richmond cheating scandal.
Kauffman has pumped in much-needed cash and brought stability and accountability to the organization since he formed a partnership with Waltrip.
Kauffman is a founder of the Fortress Investment Group. He also founded RK Motors and has stepped in to fill occasional sponsorship gaps in the past.
Kauffman was at Dover Sunday and a NASCAR track for the first time since the scandal hit. He returned from overseas to get MWR reorganized.
He says Ty Norris is a ``valuable member'' of the organization but refused to comment on any future role for the suspended MWR crew chief.
