Still thinking he'* going to go with his own company with Hendricks motors, maybe to Childress in the 3 after hes won a few championships...and, yes Will, I think he will win some.
Hendricks is a huge NO and it'* all media. Rick Hendrick would not put Earnhardt and Gordon together. I cant believe i just typed that ewwww OMG. It'* RCR i put $20.00 on that.
I never said he would drive for Hendricks...probably never happen...what I meant was that Jr. Motorsports would use Hendricks MOTORS..which is what I read when it was announced he'* leave DEI.
Just pulled this off on Nascar.com...
"With respect to my father, I don't feel very comfortable about that," he said. "He made that number what it is. With respect to him, I believe it belongs to him, you know what I mean? I never say never, and I've told you guys before that I was interested in doing that later in my career, and I still feel like that. I still feel that way. If that'* something Richard is interested in, we can explore that, but that'* a long way down the road."
That'* not to say Earnhardt still won't wind up driving for Childress, something that seemed more likely Saturday when Joe Gibbs Racing president J.D. Gibbs expressed evident unease at the prospect of adding an alcohol sponsor and expanding so rapidly to four cars -- but at the same time, not ruling out eventually talking with the driver. It'* easy to see Earnhardt signing with Childress and driving a red Budweiser car adorned with the No. 30, which RCR fielded years ago for Jeff Green, Jeff Burton and Steve Park.
