CORNELIUS, N.C. -- Michael Waltrip Racing accepts the penalties issued by NASCAR this evening and plans to move forward in the 2013 season.
 
Michael Waltrip, founder and co-owner of MWR: "What occurred on the No. 55 radio at the end of Saturday night's race in Richmond was a split-second decision made by team spotter Ty Norris to bring the No. 55 to pit lane and help a teammate earn a place in the Chase. We regret the decision and its impact. We apologize to NASCAR, our fellow competitors, partners and fans who were disappointed in our actions. We will learn from this and move on. As general manager, Ty Norris has been an integral part of Michael Waltrip Racing since its founding and has my and (co-owner) Rob Kauffman's full support."
