Penske Racing president Tim Cindric moved to fan some flames on a growing rumor about any potential LMP1 involvement for Penske with Porsche.

In an interview with SPEED.com’s John Dagys, Cindric denied rumors that plans are in place for a 2014 appearance in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

“Right now, we don’t have any plans for 2014 for sports cars as we sit here today,” Cindric said Thursday. “There’s nothing at all, and nothing really on the horizon, to be honest. There’s an outside chance of one situation but it’s not what everybody has been talking about.”

Penske Racing currently fields a pair of IndyCar Chevrolets for Helio Castroneves and Will Power, and four cars in NASCAR split between two Sprint Cup Fords (Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano) and two Nationwide Series Fords (Sam Hornish Jr. and a combo of Keselowski, Logano, Ryan Blaney and AJ Allmendinger) full-time. There’s also been a third IndyCar for Allmendinger in selected races, but none since Detroit.
