“While skipping the next two races will hurt our points position in the short term, returning to the track at Talladega ready to move forward with fully tested Toyota Camry's will enhance our program overall”

Life without Dale Earnhardt Jr. at his late father's NASCAR Sprint Cup team is going just fine, thank you. via Salisbury Post

Its all about JR now "BUT" just watch, Kyle is going to be the best in the business in racing and remember he is only 22 and he has the best career ahead of him but he does know how to show em all that he owns those tracks come race day, i wouldnt watch it if he was not in it, but i do love my RCR guys, but that Kyle is the king of Nascar and a lot of you know that Nascar is so boring without him!!

Teresa has to much glass to let the old man Menard do her. He is in his seventy's UHG! what a thought!
You need to live here in Menard country to know the truth. Menards, the stores, were started here in Wisconsin, and the Menard family is very well known. And, it's very well known that Paul's daddy has been with Teresa for at least a couple of years. And, John Menard isn't in his 70's, he's in his 60's and Teresa is 50, so that's not such a big age difference, at least not in this day and age.

If you believe that I have some swamp land for sale. She has lost more in sponsorship and merchandise money then she would have been out if she would have given Junior 51% of the business. Junior spells money, big money. She now has 4 drivers that sell very little merchandise and she is missing that money. I think that she thought that Dale Sr. would bring that money in, and now Junior is bigger than Sr. in sells. There are only so many remakes of shirts and die-cast that you can make. Wait and see who has the last laugh

Check back in 2 more years and then take a new review of DEI. I am sure Jr made the right choice..

I agree..No other driver could come close to Jr's
merchandise selling numbers. Bet she is missing that money. How many fans are buying Paul Menard die cast and t shirts? LOL

I'm assuming that the blown engine you are refering to is from last week.
If so it blew from an accident where something when through the radiator.
So technicaly that's not the same as the problems that DEI were having last year.
All in all I thing DEI is healthier without Jr.
What DEI needs to do is get rid of PM and give that ride to AA.
Jim that sounds like an excuse. Isn't that what you told us everytime Jr blew an engine last year?

Oh my gosh gir!! I almost jumped through my TV to smack him. The kid is so rude. I hope his sponsors realize that he is only going to hurt their sales if he doesn't learn tape his mouth shut. New name for him "Cactus Weed".

The kid is a good driver but is way too wreckless and I just pray that he doesn't end up hurting or killing himself or another driver.

It kind of scares me that Cactus Weed (Weed for short) is starting behind Jr on Sunday. Lets hope he can keep it clean.

Gibbs needs to have a big heart to heart with Weed.

He just stated a fact,... what's the problem with that? Tony, Gordon and many others have said much the same on occasion, he just said it straight out. Explain why no matter where he is in a race, be it 10 laps down or behind the wall, half the commentators act like he's the only car out there.
You Jr fans are just way too jealous of the Kid.
Since the start of this season his fan base has been growing leaps and bounds.
He is good, real good and I think that scares a lot of the "other" drivers fans.
I know it concerns me in some ways. Always been a 24 fan but I can see this kid taking a serious run at his records.
Jr's always just been Earnhardt hype never a serious contender, most times his own worse enemy. But this kid, well if ever there was driver that could take junk cars to the front , he's it.

No it's not an excuse, it's the reason.

When Jr. had all those engines blow, no one really knows why.

Junk equipment, over driving, testing???

The person who refered to no engine failuries for Jr this year and DEI has one was decieving, since it only blew due to an accident.

That's my point.

Did you that the 01 has the DEI logo on the hood? Guess they don't have a sponsor for it. Hum, short sponsors, short on merchandise sales. Guess the money may end up being an issue down the road. I'm sure Menard's can't support the entire company.
