Don't you just hope Jr will have a spectacular year and let the world know he IS a great race car driver?!! It's hard to win races if you don't have good equipment...and some moral support. Did Teresa ever show up on a track to support Dale Jr? We all like a pat on the back once in a while. I think Hendrick will let Jr know he appreciates him and in turn, Jr will keep getting better and better!

Hello...This article is from 2003. With all due respect another example of how Nascar hoodwinks fans. It's his BUSCH car. He had no sponsor.....he led every lap and magically he got a sponsor. Lord.
