Default Navy pulls sponsorship for next year's No. 88

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Add Dale Earnhardt Jr. to the growing list of car owners searching for sponsorship.


The Navy is leaving the No. 88 Chevrolet in the Nationwide Series at the end of the season, forcing Earnhardt to search for funding for the flagship car at JR Motorsports.

"We were informed last week that our sponsorship with the U.S. Navy will not renew at the end of the year," team spokesman Mike Davis said Tuesday. "It's been an exceptional partnership since 2005, and we look forward to a strong finish to the season as Brad Keselowski and the No. 88 Navy team contends for a NASCAR Nationwide Series championship."
Keselowski gave the Navy its first NASCAR victory last month with a Nationwide win at Milwaukee. He's second in the series standings, and trails Clint Bowyer by 202 points.

It's funny, just one year ago there was clamoring about too many well funded teams, and so many people being disappointed when they couldn't qualify. I would not be at all surprised if by as soon as the end of this year if there are races with less than 43 cars. The money is drying up across the board...

i agree with you. nascar looks like it sold out to its core fans and now with the ecomony in bad shape, you cant really afford to pay for a team out of your own pocket.

I know with Alltell selling out to Verizon the 12 car needs a new sponser and Cheerios has left Petty to go to RCR. And to make rednecks even more disgruntled Budweiser has sold out. What is the world coming too?????

Interesting. That "redneck" company Budweiser sold for 52 billion. Hardly chump change.

The way he is running I don't think he will have any trouble finding another sponsership.
