Longtime sponsor Aaron’s reacts to Michael Waltrip Racing situation


Aaron’s, a longtime sponsor of Michael Waltrip Racing, issued a statement late Wednesday afternoon in reaction of the news earlier in the day that MWR will not field a Sprint Cup team in 2016.

“We’ve had a great partnership with Michael Waltrip Racing for the past 15 years and they are like family to us.

“We want to thank the MWR family for their hard work, passion and competitive spirit. They have played an important role in helping us build the Aaron’s brand over the years.

“NASCAR will be an important part of our future and we are evaluating options for 2016 and beyond. However, our first priority is on making the rest of the season a great one!”
