I read 'Full time teams' which leaves the door open for part time racing

This is the final repercussion of what the "Team" attempted to do to make the Chase a couple years ago.

After all that, Waltrip lost major sponsorship and support from other teams. NAPA went away, which was HUGE, along with a lot of other secondary sponsors. Aaron's was about the only one to stay with MWR. 5 Hour Energy is with Bowyer, which is why he will have NO problem finding a ride for next year.

His teams paid the price for what he/they did at that time, Michael Waltrip is now paying that price too.

Not to mention the Daytona "Rocket Fuel" scandal. I think that put them on the radar being a new team and all. They had some other minor penalties, but nothing you do not see from other teams at times. Richmond was a big one that not many teams would be able to survive.
