In a very tersely-worded press release, Richard Childress has vehemently denied a recent Internet report that Jack Daniel's was being replaced as the primary sponsor of the #07 RCR Chevy at the end of the 2008 season.
"Jack Daniel’s and Richard Childress Racing have a contract through the 2009 season. Any reports in the media to the contrary are simply not accurate," Childress said in the statement.
This past Monday, Dave Moody of Sirius radio and The Motorsports Soapbox reported UPS would be dumping David Reutimann and the #44 Michael Waltrip Racing Toyota at season's end and become the primary sponsor for Clint Bowyer's #07.
The report went so far as to state Jack Daniel's would then become the primary on Ryan Newman's new Stewart-Haas Racing ride if/when he failed to re-sign with Penske Racing.
