Michael Waltrip Racing issued an apology in the wake of what took place at Sunday's AdvoCare 500 at Phoenix International Raceway.

Michael Waltrip driver Clint Bowyer was involved in an incident with Jeff Gordon that boiled over to both driver's crews fighting in the garage area.

The organization's statement:

"The goal of Michael Waltrip Racing is to be a championship-level organization both on and off the track. The on-track incident which occurred during Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Phoenix International Raceway was extremely disappointing and brought raw emotions of a long and hard championship battle to the surface. Though we generally cannot control certain actions on the track, the unfortunate reactions off the track Sunday did not live up to the professional standards in which Michael Waltrip Racing expects all of its representatives to live by. We commit to our sponsors, our manufacturer, our fans and NASCAR that we will do so in the future."
