Per press conference....5 year contract

Dancing around the car number, sponsor issues. More months of speculation there.
Hendrick did say he'd be open to discussing swapping the # 5 for the # 8 car. Jr didn't mention Bud once.

Rick Hendrick played nice when it came to the question of Kyle Busch, saying that his contract was up so he would not be back with Hendrick after this year....Kyle could go anywhere.

i think budweiser would follow jr. off the edge of the earth. im willing to bet jr. can push more beer than cornflakes anyways. ups was determined not to lose the commodity they built up with dale jarrett and i think bud knows to do the same.

ironically bud left the hendrick sponsorship of the 25 car to chase after jr w/ dei in the 1st place. i do think kelloggs stays with the 5. i think jr. may get casey mears crew though, with darrian grubb. like marty smith was saying, budweiser will make team hendrick an even richer organization.

I still think it's hilarious that Jr fans will now be scrambling to kiss Hendrick's butt.

Git yur new Jr shirt here...

Default Re: Dale Earnhardt Jr.

I have a t-shirt with an earnhardt number 3 on it, with a circle around it and a line through it (like the ghostbusters symbol). Underneath it says "I'M NOT INTIMIDATED."

I don't necessarily dislike Nascar, but as VASTEELER said, who cares.

Default Re: Dale Earnhardt Jr.

I'd like to see him race the 3 or even 33. Not much of a NASCAR fan but his own step-mother did him in and now he's got a chance to prove himself. I'd like to see him win 5-6 championships in a row.

I heard Tony Eury JR was basically told he's on his own...meanwhile...

This just in: NASCAR has announced that this week's race, at Michigan, has been renamed the "Jr. Decides Where He's Going To Race Next Year 400".

i...can't...wait.......TNT sucks

His daddy would be very proud of him. Although Jr's fans hate Gordon and think Dale Sr. hated him as well, that just shows their ignorance. They were rivals on the track, but had great respect for each other off the track, and Gordon often mentions how much Earnhardt taught him on and off the track. It's clear they had a mentor/protege relationship. I'm also not exactly sure how Jr. fans overlooked the fact that Earnhardt, Gordon and Johnson are all friends off the track. Marty Smith was on Romes show today, and said the reasons Jr. went to Hendrick were 1) Rick Hendrick is like a father figure for him 2) Hendrick gives him the best chance to win.

Great post, revefsreleets. I adore Jr. but I have always been a huge fan of both Gordon and JJ. I am happy that he is going to join the Hendricks team and you are right on the money with your post above. Hendricks is a force to be reckoned with now - it's going to be a ball buster of a team next year.
