Hi Nascar Fans,

Dale Jr. will hold a press conference to announce his decision tomorrow morning at 11 AM EST.

It has been stated on several internet race sites and on TV on ESPN that inside sources say he is going with Hendrick Motorsports and will become teammates with Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson and Casey Mears beginning in 2008.

Reports are that Kyle Busch will be released to make room for Junior.

Unless alot of people are wrong, I'm going to have to learn to be a Dooner fan, LOL.

Well, it won't be too aweful hard I guess, he has changed alot in last couple of years and is as different than day and night from his Daddy.

Stay tuned !!



Take care and best wishes,
Robert

It's a done deal. Negotiations will now begin on whether the #8 and budweiser stay with him or remain at DEI.

Rick said Kyle has a lot of opportunities and offers being thrown at him now.

Speed Channel said he is talking to DEI about the possibility of him taking Junior's ride.

That's just one of the possibilities though.

Junior seemed really excited and pumped and at ease at the press conference.

He has a lot of family ties and connections to Hendrick Motorsports that a lot of people are unaware of.


Should be interesting and a good move for Dale.

Hi,

Yeah I watched it on a video on the pc.

I thought probably he would end up a Hendricks.

Joe Gibbs will not allow a Budweiser sponsorship should Bud stay with Jr.

Joe is very religious and family oriented. He said Budweiser as a sponsor is not a good fit with his visions. He also has an on line ministry.

Yup, another driver for Hendricks....LOL, I will forever keep my opinions to my self! :lol:

LOL, Robert, you have the rest of this season to get used to cheering for Jr!

Never was real or factual anyway. Junior is friends with Jeff and has been and Dale Sr. was also friends with him and business partners on a few business deals.

Earnhardt fans don't like him, but the Earnhardts themselves did and do, LOL.

I believe this will be good for Junior in the long run.


It'll take some getting use to all the way around on all sides . :P :)

It was Dale Sr. and J. Gordon that started Chase Authentics apparel company together. They were always friends.
