HIGH POINT, N.C. -- Bill Davis Racing crew chief Frank Stoddard refuted Tuesday an Internet report published Sunday in which an intercepted scanner
transmission ripping driver Michael Waltrip was incorrectly attributed to Stoddard.
The comment on the BDR frequency for the No. 22 Caterpillar Dodge driven by rookie Scott Wimmer bluntly demeaned Waltrip's driving ability.
"I didn't say it -- Michael and I are friends and still were, the last I knew," Stoddard said. "There are 18 guys on my crew that are on that
frequency and that doesn't count the guys on the 23 crew (BDR's second car) that also have access to it."
Dave Blaney, driving Davis' No. 23 Ollie's Dodge, was involved in an accident with Waltrip Sunday that prompted the radio commentary.
"There has to be some responsibility used when you access scanner transmissions," Stoddard said. "If you asked me for a comment, I would give you one.
