If you don't think the Dale Jr./DEI split was personal now... think again.

I can't believe that there is anyone surprised at this. It's been coming, ever since Theresa run Jr. off. It was just a matter of when.
It would do my heart good if Jr. and Hendrick bought them out and as Theresa was leaving Jr. would be holding the door open for her. Then kicked her in the ass!

You're right, Dale Sr. probably is turning over in his grave.

I wonder how she sleeps at nite. She hated Jr. and Kelly from the get go. She has gotten what she deserves IMO. When she has to sell out completely I hope the door slams on her ass on her way out!

She's got to be dumber than a brick. Of course, she's too proud to come crawling back to Jr and Kelley and ask for their help. But to align with Ganassi, of all people, a guy who's Nascar team is run badly, is just stupid business. Ganassi is spread too thin already because of his Indy car teams, and he doesn't have the time or cash to run both entities properly. But now that her former lover, John Menard, has pulled his son, his support and his money from DEI, she had no choice. Sr has got to be madder than heck. The other person I feel terrible for is Martin Truex. He's stuck there.

I BELIEVE TRUEX SIGNED A CONTRACT ONLY FOR THE 2009 SEASON. AFTER THAT HE'LL BE GONE TO. THEN WHO WILL THEY HAVE

You're right I believe he did just sign up for 09. I remember when Jr left, everyone was saying that Truex would hold the team together. There was no way he could, not after Jr. When Bud left, so did the money. Now Army left. What have they got left? If I'm not mistaken Bass Pro is gone after this yr too. As far as Menard the only reason he got a seat was because of Daddy.

Well she finally did it. The end of DEI and it's all thanks to her. Her unbelievable ego will not allow this to work any more then she could run DEI! Ganassi and his group will eat her for lunch and then spit her to the curb. What a joke, all she said was she wanted to perserve Dale Sr's memory, well she all but wiped him out. To think DEI is no longer family owened and operated is just plain wrong. One day the rest of the Earnhardt family will be working for Jr motorsports, get out now Kerry and take your son with you. She has no loyality and no Menard to pay her bills and Truex will be gone in a year too. Bye Teresa, we won't miss you a bit!

As a Martin Truex fan this is music to my ears. But what got the new members of Martin Truex bandwagon hopping on. He could of used fans all year not just all of a sudden. Welcome aboard. Stay a while no one ever comes to his forum on here. He could use the support.

This will be gone within 3 years. She'll plant it as well.
