Motorsports Notebook: Truex-Dei union solid one?

Mar 29, 2008 Full story: www.topix.net

“I haven't gone down that road yet. I'm just focused on winning right now with my team and giving these guys everything I have.”

Does Martin Truex Jr.'s future lie with Dale Earnhardt Inc.?

Truex is in the third year of his contract with DEI, a deal which includes an option for 2009 that has been exercised by DEI but requires approval from Truex.

The upheaval at DEI -- including the departure of Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the additions of drivers Mark Martin, Aric Almirola and Regan Smith -- and Truex's slow start to 2008 have prompted questions about his future.

'I suspect he'll have a difficult year answering this question all year along as far as what he's going to do and where he's going to go,' Earnhardt Jr. said Friday at Martinsville Speedway.

Interesting short article for those who liked the Dale Jr/Martin Truex combo. I personally liked those guys as team mates and would love to see them together again.

I like Turex and the season is young. He can win a race or made the chase. He seems like a good driver. If he doesn't stay at DEI, I am sure someone will take him on.

You don't think that Hendricks would let Casey go in order to bring Truex, Jr into the house do you?

True; thinking about Kyle there was a lot of friction and I don't see that with Casey at all.

That's a long shot. I don't see him going to Hendricks at all.

I personally do not see Truex leaving DEI. Since Jr left, he is the top dog. I think Truex likes being the center of attention at DEI.

Yes I guess its a comfort to win 1 race and be top dog. Not to many top dogs in sprint cup have only won 1 race......

I agree with you on this one for sure. It just goes to show the lack of talent at DEI these days.
