According to a report by ESPN's Marty Smith, Office Depot will not be returning as Tony Stewart's co-sponsor for the 2013 season. For the full report, click here.

"Office Depot has notified SHR that they will not be renewing as the primary sponsor of the No. 14 team," SHR spokesman Mike Arning said. "However, SHR is in continued discussions with Office Depot regarding possible future roles the company could have with the team."

This latest news has caused another huge blow to the organization because Office Depot sponsored 22 of 38 races in 2012. Additionally, Ryan Newman has no sponsorship for the 2013 season due to his car’s primary sponsor, the U.S. Army, deciding not to continue funding for the team after this season ends.
