NASCAR TEAMS TOLD TO INVENTORY PARTS
MORE MISSING PARTS FOUND
Martinsville- Following allegations of intellectual espionage from Roush Fenway Racing owner Jack Roush, NASCAR officials ordered all teams to do an immediate and complete inventory of every part in their respective shops. The mandatory parts inventory comes after revelations that Michael Waltrip Racing had been in posession of a sway bar belonging to Roush Fenway.
"We want to make absolutely certain that every single part is where it belongs." said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR's competition director.
Upon completion of the inventory, MWR owner Michael Waltrip called an improptu news conference to announce that MWR personnel discovered more Roush Fenway parts in the MWR storeroom.
"We're just plum embarrassed about this one, " Waltrip told reporters. "Of course, the parts were immediately returned to RFR as soon as they were discovered."
The parts in question appear to be Jack Roush's marbles.
