Default Dale Jr. to Hendircks ???

I see this was discussed briefly in another threas, but c'mon, sure this is worth of it'* own thread.
Never though I'd see it happen.
I guess Hendrick will totally dominate now huh?
Just wonder how Gordon and Jr will co-exist.

Jeff and Jr. will both likely lose a small number of fans with this union.

Anything that ditches little Busch to ANYWHERE is a good thing. Latest rumor has Kyle Busch going to Ginn, Mark Martin finishing the season in the #5. Jr. taking over the 5 with Bud as a sponsor next season.

No word on his replacement in the 8 at DEI yet. Rumors of Greg Biffle going there have been discounted.

I've got the live webcast from JR Motorsports up on my other monitor. Starting in 2 minutes.

This is pretty much what I hear to.
Not sure if I can get the telecast or not here at work.
Please keep me posted.
I agree that losing Bush will be no loss. He reminds me of Ricky Bobby

Well, I guess the move is oficial, huh. ANd, no Bush. But form what I see no definite as to what number Jr will drive or who his sponsor will be.

They put the bitch Theresa on the spot by publicly stating they'd like to discuss the #8. If she refuses, she'* deeper in her hole. She can save some face by offering a gracious deal.

Good point.
Honestly, it would probably tick off a lot of people if the switched numer
(6.7) LOL
but, since no one seems to like Theresa anyways, I guess she doesn't have much to lose.
On the other hand, Hendricks'* certainly has some $ to help influence her decision, and she definitely seems to be interested in that.

i dont think jr is going to get the # 8. hope he does but i dont think she will give it to him .

as much as it turns my stomach to think of jr - gordo and jimmie waaa waaa johnson on the same team , it is probably the best move he could have possibly made. he wants to WIN . going to a powerhouse like hendrick gives him the best chance to do that. he wants to get a championship or two to establish his career. how many races has he won at dei in the last two years ?? not sure off the top of my head but i am sure its no more than three. hats off to jr for being a man and doing what he thinks is best for him.

Yeah, I wonder about the Jr./Gordon/Jimmie Johnson thing, but apparently Jr. and Rick Hendrick have quite the relationship. And, like you said it'* the place to go if you really want to win.
