Yes but honestly...

How will this get Jr any closer to ownership at DEI?? If it weren't for his Stuck up step mommy and his greedy lil brat of a sister this would have never of happened. and referring to the "biggest smile on his face" NO shat his salary and Kelley'* part would likely field a wintson west team for 5 years.

For Jr it'* about winning and racing

for Kelly it'* $$$$

and for Teresa it'* power she shouldn't have.

this whole thing is a fuggin mess.

I wont rule 'Bud' out of sponsorship but Hendrick has turned down 'booze' companies in the past because of his personal belifes.
I think its going to be tough to get the #8 from DEI, from a business stand point I wouldnt give it up.
10 out of 14 wins have gone to the same team......what does Nascar do every time there seems to be a dynasty......they change the rules......stay tuned

btw,Fatboy and team Joe FTW

I predict that Jr will win Taladega next year, and the Cup in 09.
Really curious to see what numer he drives, and who his sponsor is.

Budweiser has clearly stated they are interested in talking with Hendrick and Jr. to pursue their relationship with them both. In other words, they have no interest in any other driver.

Hendrick stated yesterday that he would be pleased if Bud came over to HMS with Jr.

from Jayski.com

Quote:
Earnhardt Elledge says contract details still to be finalized: Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Rick Hendrick have agreed for Earnhardt Jr. to drive for Hendrick Motorsports next season. But while they have an agreement, there are many details to work out, from potential sponsorship conflicts to whom the actual sponsor of the car might be. While Hendrick and Earnhardt Jr. have agreed, it'* now time for Hendrick Motorsports Executive Vice President Marshall Carlson and JR Motorsports General Manager Kelley Earnhardt Elledge to get to work. "We haven't gotten all the details down," said Earnhardt Elledge, who is the business manager for her brother. "Rick is a man of his word. We've had some high-level discussion on our expectations and what the most important thing for us is, the involvement in terms of sponsors and licensing and marketing in terms of Dale'* brand. Dale knows the competition side and what'* important there. ... We still have a long ways to go in putting all the details together." Earnhardt Elledge said that Earnhardt Jr. has basically signed a letter of intent and contract details are still being worked out. But she said it will get done because Earnhardt Jr. is comfortable that Hendrick will watch out for his well-being. Earnhardt Elledge said negotiations with other teams had not progressed to the point where Earnhardt Jr. was close to signing with another team.(SceneDaily.com)(6-14-2007)

Well, I am not a fan of either Jr. or Bud, but I know it would be incredibly stupid for them to part ways if it can be avoided. I am thinking more along the lines of the fact that the sponsors are usually contracted out for several years at a time, so the current sponsors of the 25 maybe locked. Not sure how that will get handled. Perhaps Bud can "buy out" the contract form the 25'* current sponsor

There'* no reason to do any of that if they simply trade the #5 for the #8 and send Busch over to DEI. Contracts and cars could stay intact then.

Jr will if this is real and NOT a publicity stunt to push Teresa into a corner take over the 5.

Seeing as there isn't a contract signed I do not know how real this is.

I still want to believe its
