    (A second attempt to start discussion on this without the flaming of the first.)

    Dale Jr. denied it Wednesday night.

    be interesting to see how this plays out; if he denies it tonight, what happens at the conference tomorrow?

    Yahoo! Sports has a story that sounds like it's a done deal. It reads like they have info that maybe only the radio report has. ESPN.com doesnt have much.

    Dammit, who cares about NECKCAR?

    oh, sorry...

    Since I know so little about NASCAR, Junior isn't Dale and Teresa's son, right? So, him leaving isn't a true family betrayal. Or is this like a Young and the Restless thing.

    And just to add fuel to the fire, I don't follow racing, but this story caught my attention.

    Dale's son, not Teresa's

    Hi bo... er, bydesign.

    No, Junior is one of Dale's kids from a previous marriage.

    He only had one kid with Teresa.
  8. Any chance he's announcing that he's taking over control of DEI?

    Announcement is coming at the shop of the team owned by Junior, not DEI.

    You'd figure if they were gonna announce a deal, it'd be at DEI's shop.

    It will be interesting to see how the whole thing plays out in the next couple weeks. Still don't think it's a done, done deal and plenty of people will leave themselves wiggle room to back out on one end or the other.

    Write, that's what I was thinking... any chance of that happening?
  11. Is DEI DOA if this deal is DONE?

    No. There's been rumors DEI is going to merge with Robert Yates, which would allow Yates to pick up Paul Menard's sponsorship.

    It all should be interesting.
