Announcement Expected Wednesday: Sources: Dale Jr. to be 88

“I've done about as good as I can do about narrowing it down and what not”

Dale Earnhardt Jr. will drive the No. 8 next season. In fact, he'll drive two of them.

During a news conference Wednesday in Dallas, Hendrick Motorsports officials will announce Earnhardt Jr. will drive the No. 88 beginning in 2008, the Observer has learned from multiple sources.

The announcement will complete the puzzle to the courtship of the services of NASCAR's most popular driver.

Hendrick officials, as has been the case throughout the process, declined to comment.

Robert Yates Racing currently fields the No. 88 in the Nextel Cup Series and would have to relinquish the number for Hendrick to use it. Yates co-owner Doug Yates did not immediately return a call for comment Friday. Read more

Well if UPS becomes a sponsor they can still use the "Race the truck Dale" commercials LOL Hell they could even strap Teresa to the roof as Jr. races around the track.

I wish they could use negative numbers. Since he sucks so hard, he should be -8 or something like that.

Hey over, if he sucks so bad why are you wasting your life talking about him? You shouldn't put your time into someone you hate when you could be spending it on the people in your life.

Keep it up and I promise you, you will disappear from this site. Don't believe me? Just keep it up and you will be sitting all by your lonesome wondering what happened. I've seen many others banned for the same thing. People are getting way tired of your constant trouble making including me. All you do is come on here and try and get people to fight with you. So, if you want to stay then I suggest you cool it right now or leave. You are one little Email away from being gone. Catch my drift?

Please send Email to topix to have "Dale over rated" removed from this site. He is a cancer and has done nothing but stir up trouble constantly.

Ooohhh, I love an internet threat! Love it. So, are you going to get the people from Topix to break down my door and remove my computer? You are funny. I especially got a kick out of your line: "you are one little email away from being gone." That was a nice touch. Scary and yet dramatic all at the same time.

Dipstick, even if I get banned, life will go on. I will just wait out my sentence and come back. As long as I am around next year when Jr tanks is fine by me. I can wait.

He has already been banned before. I think they banned him for being an asshat/windbag and just all around pain in the ass.

Thanks Unfreak! I know I battle with people but it is within the framwork of the subject at hand but this guy has been doing this troublemaking crap non stop. That is his sole purpose on here. Please go to my new thread and see if you agree with me. It is in the Jr forum. You will know which one!

We all like TBChief, even the really arrogant jerkfaces have respect for the Chief. I didn't think that was a lower form of troll until I read you.
