LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — NASCAR president Mike Helton says there is no animosity from the governing body toward the recently formed nine-team Race Team Alliance that will collaborate on initiatives and issues facing the sport.

Michael Waltrip Racing co-owner Rob Kauffman was elected chairman of the RTA on Monday. The goals of the RTA include lowering costs for NASCAR teams and creating one voice on issues facing the teams. Kauffman insisted the RTA is not a union.

Speaking Friday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Helton says every car owner has a voice in the garage. Helton says NASCAR will "continue to do business the way we've done business."

Helton says he did have notice from the RTA that it was forming. Helton says "we believe the way we do our form of motorsports has worked."
