Ford-sponsored Jasper team ran Dodge
Blaney CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Ford Racing has terminated its contract with Jasper Motorsports because the team competed at Talladega Superspeedway last weekend in a Dodge.
The automaker said Wednesday it was repossessing all its equipment from the No. 77 team immediately and would cease using driver Dave Blaney in promotions.
"What happened at Talladega was unacceptable,'' said Greg Specht, manager of Ford Racing Operations. "To be a Ford team, you have to run a Ford.''
