I know that Dale is concerned that his fans will not understand why he is doing this. Please Dale rest assured that your true, real fans totally get why you are leaving. You must think about your future, think about the life that exists outside of NASCAR. I say good for you for standing up for what you want and what you believe. You are showing that you are truly a real man who does not have to live off your father's name (not that you ever have) or fame. You are showing all those of the NASCAR circuit that you believe in yourself, your crew, and your talent. Your dad is looking down upon you with pride and joy. He is probably saying "That's my boy showing he has his own two legs to stand on. I raised him right." So with that, Dale, I will always be pulling for you no matter who you may sign with. I will pull for you even when you decided that you no longer wish to race, for I am not only a fan of yours but a person who looks up to you in everything you do.

Great Post! I am also a fan of Dale's but not just for racing. I really like the young dude. He has a thing about him that average people like. He is not cocky or arrogant and just does'nt have any bad traits. He seems like a guy I would love to have a beer with and just shoot the shit for a while. I could tell in the interview with DW tonight that this move really hurt him. Teresa should be embarrassed to let a good person like him go. Many, many thousands of people would be proud to call him their son and she should be the first one to do it. I know I sound over dramatic but he does not have all the fans he has just because of his name . I am really proud of his sister Kelly too for always being by his side and I mean always. Did you notice he always said "WE" and I really think that meant him and sis Kelly. She has his back no matter what! I would be proud to call him a son,brother,friend or just my favoroite driver. One last thing, Why all the silence from Teresa and where the hell is his brother Kerry. At least have the courage to speak out and let people know where they stand regardless of which side they take.

I admire jr for his guts. I know it can't be easy for him. I know first hand what it feel's like to be torn apart inside trying to decide what to do. Whatever happens in the end, I will always love jr. He truly is a one of a kind person. I wish him the best of luck in his new journey. May he find the owner most worthy of his presence and talent.
