It's Smoke... Theresa decided to get 1 great big last jab at Jr by going into a partnership with Smoke.. Now wouldn't that be a kicker.

I certainly hope that Smoke would not rescue DEI. Theresa made the choice by being greedy and that will kick you in the arse, what goes around comes around. I would also be very surprised if it did happen and don't really know right now, because it hasn't happened, but I think I might lose respect for someone that I have been a loyal fan to for many many years. I'm not saying he wouldn't still be my driver of choice; only that I think it would be disrespectfull to Jr. and alot of other people. Keep your fingers crossed that this is yet again just another rumor.

Evidently Teresa was mean to Jr. from the time he was a boy. He probably stuck it out with her longer than most of us would have because of his daddy. I hate to see something that Sr. worked so hard to build go down but I won't cry a tear for Teresa.
I was unhappy with Hendrix for letting Kyle go but I think the Jr. made an excennt decision.

Don't think this would happen.. I was just trying to be a smart A&& to the person that posted like she actually knew something.. Smoke has too much class to join forces with Theresa. I for one would me the most shocked if it did come to fruitation.

I think Tersa is going to have to sell DEI if she wants the company to last. They are losing all of their driver except for the people who don't have much experience, and that is not going to help. With the way things are running right now DEI is going to have to make some BIG changes for the company to last.

I don't think this would happen either, I have come across people who swear thier in the KNOW, but KNOW nothing. But if, a BIG IF, he did it, it sure would put a big spin on everything. I also think that it would be detrimental to NASCAR. Theresa was very mean to Dale and Kelly, but of course daddy didn't know it because he was out racing his butt off. I would think if he knew what was going on his heart would be broken. His namesake racing with someone else, his legacy basically ends here. I'm talking personally, not professionally, Dale Sr. will never be forgotten.

Yes, that would put a whole new meaning to "Silly Season". Jr's happy at HMS and doesn't have to worry about the ups and downs at DEI so I think he ended up on the good side of the stick.

It's going to be interesting the next few weeks to see where everyone lands for next year.

Didn't DEI out right buy Ginn out? I know Ginn is having massive financial problems right now.. Major lawsuits in this area for land development issues.

Smoke is the one that made the remark when Jr was leaving that DEI would be turned in a museum. I just cannot see Smoke at DEI.

I'm right there with you.. My opinion is they will be down to at least 3 cars next season if not 2. I know they are going to run at least 2 Nationwide cars full-time next year.

Theresa shit in her own nest when she let Jr. go. If DEI goes under that's all her fault.
I really can't see Tony bailing DEI out. DEI just isn't a big name team anymore. It's going on the back burner. Tony will go where the most money and best equipment is. If he goes anywhere that is.

I was just thinking the same thing. But I could not remember who said it first, Smoke or Jr.

Teresa is going to turn DEI into a museum in honor of Dale Sr.

The racing is just a sideline now for this company.

She should have sold the racing teams to Jr. and Kelley last year. Let her keep the museum part and run it. Let Dale Sr.'s kids run his race teams.

Hopefully eventually Jr. and Kelley will be able to gain control of this company before Teresa runs it into the ground.

Well the big suprise is . They are shutting down the 01 car soon due to no sponsorship. Mark Martin leaving. Truex struggling with them wanting to leave. Menards rich Papa wanting his boy in a ford next year. Working with Roush and Yates. This will leave DEI
with only the 8 car and its sponsor is supposed to be leaving to.So you said some big name driver is coming and we will be suprised. I guess it will be a suprise if they get any decent driver.... Waiting on that big time driver wish
they would bring him on......
