DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Chip Ganassi and Roger Penske have both tweaked their team names headed into the 2014 seasons.

Ganassi has dropped "Earnhardt" from the formal name of his NASCAR organization. His team will now be known as Chip Ganassi Racing with Felix Sabates, the name it used before a late 2008 merger with Dale Earnhardt Inc.

The signs at the shop have already been changed to drop Earnhardt from the name.

Penske, meanwhile, wants all of his teams to be called Team Penske. His NASCAR organization had used Penske Racing, while IndyCar had been Team Penske.
