That's a mistake..........the 28 has been a legendary number in NASCAR racing for years with a number of top drivers. Dale Jarrettt made the 88 famous by himself, and, as far as I'm concerned, that's his number and they should retire it.

Rudd's already driven the 28, so give it back to him. Is Yates just embarrassed they made a mistake when they let Rudd go?

I would have to say yes. Robert Yates realized his biggest mistake in his years of being an owner.

i think ricky will do wonders for this entire team. and i am so very relieved that ryr and the nuber 88 will continue, however for ryr to become a solid competitor again they will need to upgrade the 90 team and somehow get the texaco sponsor back and run the 28. in this day nascar champion teams are won with 3 or more teams. thus leading to more testing dates

Rudd has run the 88 before. Plus they don't want to put him back in the Texaco 28 so they can get more merchandise sales for a new sponsor and number combo.
